Members of Kentuckiana’s legal community are making a difference every day by donating thousands of hours in free legal services or financially supporting the organizations that provide such services. The Louisville Bar Association offers many ways to give back by providing access to pro bono and volunteer programs as well as sponsoring free legal training sessions to educate volunteers.

 

Giving Back

Our volunteers contribute their skills and talents in a variety of ways. In the current economic climate, legal aid organizations are facing increasing demands for their services and pro bono attorneys are an important supplement to these efforts. Additionally, we offer a variety of non-legal opportunities to give back to the community through the year.

How Can I Get Involved?

Our partnership with numerous local and national organizations offers volunteers opportunities to choose between a variety of programs and time slots to fit their busy schedules.
