In doing so, PBI identifies and develops innovative programs and undertakes rigorous evaluations to ensure that these new approaches are workable and effective. PBI administers a number of projects designed to enhance access to justice, including: the Law Firm Pro Bono Project, Corporate Pro Bono, Second Acts®, Global Pro Bono, and Public Interest Pro Bono.
