1. When do I have to turn in my timesheets?
All time sheets should be sent to the pro bono email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hours are due by April 1 of each year, especially for graduating students. You are free to submit timesheets before April.
2. Can I get pro bono credit for work done at a non-profit externship?
You may get credit for work at a non-profit externship AFTER you have completed the number of work hours needed to fulfill your externship. If the placement is non-profit, but does not provide direct benefit to persons of limited means, only half of the credit will be counted.
3. Does non-legal volunteer work count?
All volunteer work will count towards your first year community service requirement. After those four hours are counted, only pro bono work will count.
4. Can I volunteer at an organization not listed as an approved placement?
Yes. The placement list is not exclusive and students are encouraged to find volunteer opportunities that match their interests.
