The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law’s participation in a Veterans Pro Bono Pop-Up Clinic was mentioned in Legal News as an example of one of the ways law students from across the country have served thousands of clients and devoted millions of hours in services. During the Pop-Up clinic, CUA Law students were paired with a volunteer attorney to collect client data, conduct issue spotlighting, and provide legal information and referrals to veterans.
Many CUA Law students take the Pro Bono Pledge, where they commit to complete varying levels of pro bono service during their three or four years of law school. The CUA Law Pro Bono Program fosters the importance of hands-on learning opportunities to assist those in need of access to justice. Pro Bono projects enable students to apply the lessons they have learned in the classroom to real-life cases while advancing their professional development.
