Volunteering to Stay Sane | Pro Bono Opportunities during Covid-19
We all know that social isolation can drive us crazy. Whether you've been at home for two days or two weeks, you might be starting to feel a little disconnected.
The Utah State Bar has set up an easy, over-the-phone volunteer system to help you connect with pro bono clients and do some good, while also maintaining strong ties to the community and the heart of the profession.
Volunteering is easy. Just visit www.utahlegalhelp.org/volunteer and sign up. After that, the Bar will send you a weekly or monthly email with a single case that could use 20-30 minutes of attention. You simply call the client back, or email them, and share your advice. That's it. There's no ongoing obligation or responsibility with the case.
We hope this program will make it easy to volunteer. More importantly, we hope it will help you reconnect and feel a part of the legal community.
