One reason that an attorney may be hesitant to engage in pro bono legal service is a lack of familiarity with a new area of law or a new client population. To address this barrier, the PBRC provides trainings and resources to help a potential volunteer build both competence and confidence.

Trainings and resources may include CLE opportunities, webinars, current issue-related news, frequently asked questions or static print or video information. Additional resources on effective pro bono service, such as cultural competency and client counseling, are being developed.
