Pro Bono Opportunities
Among Michigan’s Native communities, especially those located in rural areas of the state, the percentage of individuals living below the poverty level is generally much higher than the state overall. Poverty and scarce legal resources contribute to a significantly greater need for effective legal counsel and you can be a part of the solution by volunteering as a pro bono attorney with MILS.
MILS has a pro bono opportunity to fit your schedule, your location, and your practice area. Sign up as a pro bono volunteer to:
Provide community legal education presentations to rural Native communities in Michigan
Provide mentoring or case consultation to MILS staff attorneys in your area of expertise
Directly represent MILS clients
