About Us


The Volunteer Lawyers Project of the Boston Bar Association has been dedicated to serving low-income families and individuals in the Greater Boston Area since 1977. We strive to give equal access to justice to our clients by delivering high-quality pro bono civil legal services to eligible clients through our court clinics, lawyer-for-the-day programs, and referring full representation cases. Our efforts are propelled by a strong team of volunteers, including attorneys, paralegals, and law students from all segments of the legal community. These vital volunteers work together with our entire dedicated staff.
