The course teaches essential lawyering skills applicable to pro bono scholars who are dedicating themselves to public interest lawyering through the NYS Pro Bono Scholars Program. That program allows students to take the February bar exam in their 3L year, and to spend March - end of May working full time in a public interest organization. The course also is offered to other students eligible for February Bar exams in states such as Texas. The course supports the students by focusing on issues such as: Informed Trauma, Implicit Bias/Cultural Competency, Working with Pro Bono Counsel, ethical practice and supervision and feedback.
