Louisville Pro Bono Consortium

The Louisville Pro Bono Consortium is a partnership between the Louisville Bar Association and the Legal Aid Society. Its mission is to encourage the pro bono, voluntary provision of civil legal services to Metro Louisville’s low-income community and it’s organizations.

The mission of the Consortium is:

• To serve and promote the general welfare of the citizens of Louisville and Jefferson County, Kentucky by encouraging the provision of civil legal services, without compensation, to the low income community and its organizations;
• To provide a range of varied opportunities for members of the LBA to serve the legal needs of the low-income community and its organizations;
• To promote legal education for the low income community so that these individuals and their organizations will better understand their legal rights and how to deal with government and the legal system.

While projects change from year to year, there are always opportunities to volunteer through the LBA. Currently, the following programs are operating under the Consortium’s direction:
• The Latino Legal Clinics of Louisville which helps to address the legal needs of the Hispanic/Latino population;
• Health Clinics for cancer patients and persons suffering with Multiple Sclerosis;
• Pro Se Clinics for victims of domestic violence;
• Non-Profit Outreach that includes board membership and legal assistance;
• Outreach to Jefferson County Public Schools that assist low income families working through the Family Resource Centers.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the volunteer application on our website or contact Kate Lindsay at 583-5314, ext. 113.
