We have two requirements: (1) you must agree to provide ongoing oversight of the student volunteer during his/her work on the project and (2) students must be covered under your organization's malpractice insurance because Michigan Law is unable to provide malpractice insurance for law students doing pro bono work. We also ask for, but do not require, an Organization Evaluation so we can get your feedback.
Please note that there are no guarantees that students will select your project.
Step 2—Register your Organization: Go to http://www.law.umich.edu/probono/pages/OrgProjects.aspx and use the email address and password that you just created to log in. Click on "Add Organization Information." Please enter your organization's information, and then click "Save."Step 3—Create your Project(s): Go to http://www.law.umich.edu/probono/pages/OrgProjects.aspx, log in using your friend account, click on "Add New Project Here," and fill in the form with your project; please click "Save" to submit the project to our office. If the project meets the above criteria, we will approve it, and it will be added to the online student database, where students will be able to select your project.
Students will find out about available projects in three main ways. First, students can log into the password-protected database to view all current pro bono opportunities. Second, students have completed forms identifying their main areas of interest, and we often contact students when a project in their interest area is added. Third, we have a student listserv for publicizing projects.
Please note that despite these various ways of publicizing a project, there are no guarantees that students will select your project.When a student finds a project he or she is interested in, the student will contact your organization's contact person directly to get started.
