Pro Bono Coordinators’ Network
We work towards access to justice for all North Carolinians.
Who We Are
The NC Pro Bono Coordinators Network (NCPBCN) is a collaborative of legal services providers, private law firms, corporations, law schools, and nonprofit organizations that address unmet legal needs in North Carolina, by engaging legal professionals to provide pro bono legal services and thereby increasing access to justice.
The Network is co-chaired by the NC Equal Access to Justice Commission’s Pro Bono Resource Center director, Sylvia Novinsky, and Angie Zimmern, Pro Bono Director and Counsel for McGuireWoods.
Why is the Network needed?
- The Network is designed to enhance communication between pro bono coordinators and other legal professionals.
- The Network facilitates collaboration between members at meetings and outside of meetings.
- The Network’s ultimate goal is to increase access to justice for North Carolinians.
Individuals who serve as pro bono coordinators, serve on their organization’s pro bono committee, facilitate pro bono at their organization, or desire to increase pro bono volunteerism among their legal professional staff are encouraged to join the Network. Membership is free and members can participate in a way that is appropriate for them.
If you fit the description above and would like to join the Network, please complete the PBCN Member Interest Form.
