Commitment to pro bono work is a fundamental element of our identity as a law firm. The engagements can often be a matter of life and death for clients who otherwise would be denied justice because they do not have the means to pay for necessary legal representation. Pro bono work also provides important benefits to our lawyers and paralegals and to our Firm in the form of professional developmental opportunities, team building, public relations and recruiting benefits, and personal and professional satisfaction.

Brown Rudnick focuses its pro bono representation on:

Inner-city education

Unemployment Benefits Appeals

Fighting intolerance

Lawyer of the Day

Indigent Artists

German Ghetto Workers



We also engage in high-impact matters such as bringing suit in international courts to end genocide; working with non-profits and social venture start-ups in Haiti and Africa to improve living conditions; filing amicus briefs in the Supreme Court regarding affirmative action in education and in support of local gun control.
