WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.—The North Carolina Pro Bono Resource Center was formed in 2016 to help increase pro bono participation and productivity among the state’s attorneys. In a recent issue of North Carolina Lawyers Weekly, Womble Bond Dickinson’s Alyse Young discusses how the PBRC helped her with a pro bono project.
Young is helping a non-profit organization form a for-profit subsidiary. The PBRC knew Young’s skills and helped match her with the client.
“Often, you do the pro bono work that you happen to come across, and I think that the Pro Bono Resource Center gives a more systematic approach to connecting attorneys to pro bono work, which I think is helpful, especially for attorneys who are busy and may not want to have to go look for pro bono work, but who want to take on a project,” Young tells North Carolina Lawyers Weekly.
