Get Involved

Together, we can protect civil rights, fight poverty, and work for equality in our community. Here’s how you can get involved.

Pro Bono Cases

The Committee is always looking for co-counsel on important cases. If you want to receive regular emails with available matters, please email jonathan_smith@washlaw.org. Or take a compassionate release or a parole matter or help at our workers’ rights clinic.

Workers’ Rights Clinic

The Washington Lawyers’ Committee has an exciting pro bono and volunteer opportunity in our Workers’ Rights Clinics for attorneys, non-attorneys, new associates, experienced practitioners, or persons looking for time limited or long-term commitment. Each week, we conduct clinics for low-waged workers. At the clinics we provide advice, brief serves, and screen cases for referrals or systemic litigation. No prior experience is necessary.  We provide training and Committee staff supervise and provide support to each clinic session. If you are interested, please contact Sarah Bessell (sarah_bessell@washlaw.org).
