Appellate Courts Pro Bono Pilot Project


The Appellate Courts Committee has partnered with Public Counsel's new Appellate Law Program to provide pro bono assistance to eligible civil litigants in the Second Appellate District. The pilot program includes a walk-in, self-help clinic staffed by Public Counsel at the Second Appellate District courthouse in downtown Los Angeles. Committee members can volunteer in different ways.

  • Take a Case. Represent an indigent civil litigant in eligible cases as posted on our website.
  • Answer Walk-In Questions. Staff the Appellate Law clinic for a couple of hours and answer routine questions from walk-ins.
  • Evaluate A Record. Examine, from an appellate perspective, whether the case presents potentially meritorious issues and make a recommendation to the Appellate Law clinic.
  • Mentor An Attorney. Guide an attorney who has taken an appeal pro bono from the Appellate Law clinic but has limited appellate experience.

We will announce new eligible cases requiring pro bono assistance by way of email to members of the Appellate Courts Section.

If you have any questions about the pilot program, contact Lisa Jaskol, Directing Attorney of Public Counsel's Appellate Law Program, at (213) 385-2977 ext. 151 or ljaskol@publiccounsel.org, or Tom Charchut, at (310) 215-7730 or charchut@hbblaw.com.
