Pro Bono Week

Thank you for joining the celebration!

Pro Bono Week takes place every year in October and celebrates the pro bono ethic of the thousands of professionals who volunteer their skills and professional expertise to support nonprofits all around the world.

We made engaging in the conversation and celebration easy with the VLP’s Pro Bono Week Toolkit .

Thank you to all who shared #probono stories all week long! 


The VLP was founded on the basis that the pro bono commitment of the private bar can be most effective and efficient in accessing justice for the poor.  Our pro bono model not only extends our reach, but increases our capacity to serve those who are most in need and deepens partnerships within the legal community.  

In the past year, VLP volunteers provided over 11,050 hours of high quality, compassionate, direct legal representation, advice and counsel, and community education throughout Brooklyn.

We are grateful to our volunteers who inspire us each and every day to strive to fulfill our critical mission.

“The VLP has given me the opportunity to use my legal skills to help a vulnerable population specifically working with women to obtain uncontested divorces. It has been the most rewarding experience. I can’t thank the VLP enough!”
