The Pro Bono Honors Program
The Pro Bono Honors Program gives TJSL students the opportunity to engage their community, enhance their law school experience, and build practical legal skills assisting underserved populations in traditional and non-traditional legal settings.
TJSL partners with non-profit organizations, law firms, the San Diego County Bar Association, and dozens of legal agencies, cultivating communal involvement. Our partners have included Legal Aid Society, San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program, San Diego Coastkeeper, Environmental Health Coalition, National Wildlife Federation, Public Defender’s Office, and Family Law Facilitator.
Any student who devotes at least 50 hours to volunteer legal service, specifically to underserved populations, qualifies for TJSL’s Pro Bono Honors Program, obtaining an honors certificate and cord that can be worn at graduation, proudly reflecting their commitment to the community.
