We recognize the importance of community service to our profession and to those living in Los Angeles County. The Executive Committee of the Business and Corporations Law Section encourages Section members to provide pro bono assistance to the needy. We create opportunities for our Section members to become more involved in helping individuals, non-profit organizations, and micro-businesses that are in serious need of assistance with transactional and business matters.

We are collaborating with a number of the leading community service organizations in the Los Angeles area for pro bono opportunities. These community service organizations have many opportunities available and would be grateful to receive the assistance of our Section members. Please contact these organizations and volunteer your services.
