PBI, established in 1996, provides research, consultative services, analysis and assessment, publications, and training to a broad range of legal audiences.
PBI is mandated to explore and identify new approaches to and resources for the provision of legal services to the poor, disadvantaged, and other individuals or groups unable to secure legal assistance to address critical problems. We do so by supporting, enhancing, and transforming the pro bono efforts of major law firms, in-house legal departments, and public interest organizations in the U.S. and around the world.
PBI does not provide legal representation or make referrals to private attorneys. PBI serves as a consulting body to major law firms and in-house legal departments. If you are seeking legal assistance, contact your local legal services program or bar association or go to www.findlegalhelp.org or www.lawhelp.org.
