Eastern District Pro Bono Panel

The United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina encourages the members of its Bar to provide pro bono legal services to pro se litigants. In order to facilitate the provision of pro bono services, the Court has created a pro bono program to match up interested attorneys with litigants in need of representation. The program will also provide more experienced attorneys with an opportunity to mentor younger attorneys in pro bono matters.

To sign up for the pro bono program, please complete the interest form below. Completing the interest form does not obligate you to take on pro bono work, but, instead, will allow the Court to notify you of pro bono opportunities. You may indicate a particular area of interest and the level of involvement you are willing to have in a case (i.e. you are willing to assist with a mediation or particular motion).

We hope that you will take a few minutes to complete the form and assist the Court in ensuring equal access to justice for all citizens of the Eastern District.
