Through our new and current students, CharlotteLaw demonstrates a strong commitment to public service and the community. The Center for Experiential Learning and the Center for Professional Development work together to facilitate community service and pro bono programs that allows our students to give back to our community.
As a member of the Charlotte community, you may not realize that CharlotteLaw has adopted a mandatory pro bono and community service graduation requirement for all of our students. All students must complete 20 hours of pro bono legal-related service and 10 hours of community service. For more on our community partnerships, click here.
What is considered pro bono service? This is work that includes legal-related assistance to persons of limited means in our community.
How does community service differ from pro bono service? Community service includes volunteer services to the underserved members or interests of our community in a non-legal capacity.
Why do we require our students to participate in these programs? Through programs such as these, we believe students will receive valuable practical skills and exposure to the need for a lifelong commitment to public service. Additionally, students who exemplify a commitment to pro bono service or community service may be eligible to receive recognition or an award at graduation.
