The Catholic University of America

The CUA Law Pro Bono Program


A Catholic institution located in Washington, D.C., the Columbus School of Law has a unique mission of service. This mission is exemplified by our dedication to pro bono work, a commitment shared by students, faculty and alumni alike.

The mission of the Pro Bono Program is three-fold: 1) to expand the capacity of local attorneys to provide high-quality legal services to underrepresented individuals and groups; 2) to instill in CUA Law students a lifelong professional commitment to pro bono work ; and 3) to provide superior practical experiences to CUA’s young lawyers-in-training.  Participation is voluntary, and students are recognized for their efforts at an annual celebratory reception and upon graduation.
