Take the next step in your pro bono commitment by joining other CAMBA attorneys at the District of Columbia Bar Pro Bono Program’s Advice and Referral Clinic. Volunteer CAMBA attorneys will provide clients with legal advice and brief services in a variety of civil matters. This program is a great opportunity for CAMBA attorneys to use their legal skills to provide legal services to D.C. residents who may not otherwise have access to legal services.
No experience is necessary to participate in the clinic. Pro Bono Program staff and expert mentors are available on-site to help assist volunteer attorneys.
Volunteer attorneys must be barred in D.C. or have a D.C. bar application pending to participate in the clinic. Federal government attorneys or in-house counsel may be barred in any U.S. jurisdiction to participate.
Please register by Monday, October 9th to confirm your attendance.
It is increasingly important for lawyers to be informed about legal rights that may impact those in their communities. Please join the Capital Area Muslim Bar Association (CAMBA) as we host a Pro Bono Week training with Sirine Shebaya, Senior Staff Attorney at Muslim Advocates to cover the basic case law and principles governing federal officials' authority to search and question at the border. Special attention will be given to developing standards around the search of electronic devices, as well as questioning about religious or political beliefs and affiliations. We will cover the basic constitutional principles, case law, and recent developments, as well as a list of best practices and key principles you can use in answering questions or giving Know Your Rights sessions within your community.
