Pro Bono Services Committee

Pro Bono Services

The King County Bar Association’s Pro Bono Services promotes social justice by establishing and managing volunteer-based, client-focused legal services programs, and provides services on an equal and non-discriminatory basis to low-income residents of King County who would not otherwise receive legal assistance.

Mission Statement

The KCBA Pro Bono Services Committee works collaboratively with Pro Bono Services staff to further the goals and mission of Pro Bono Services by providing support, feedback, and perspective to KCBA’s Pro Bono Services through creative thinking and actions focused on access to justice.
