The Pro Bono Project is pleased to announce two Virtual Pro Bono Clinics, with more to come, for the month of August!
The Virtual Legal Services Program has partnered with the Santa Clara County Bar Association and the Morgan Hill Library to establish two Virtual Pro Bono Clinics aimed at providing free general legal advice to underserved clients.
Where and Where are the Virtual Clinics?

The Santa Clara County Bar Association is conducting Virtual Clinic on Tuesday, August 20, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
How can I sign up for the Virtual Clinic?
You can sign up for the Morgan Hill Virtual Clinic or you can sign up for the Santa Clara County Bar Association Virtual Clinic.
How do the Virtual Clinics work?
Clients with general legal questions can sign up for a twenty minute advice session online or through our partner sites. Clients show up at the partner site at the arranged time and use the provided laptops, printer/scanner, and video conferencing software to virtually meet with a volunteer attorney over the internet. Clients can scan documents to the attorney and seek legal advice from the attorney. The attorneys offer legal advice to the client, print any document directly to the client, and provide any the client with any necessary referrals to legal service agencies.
What happens if the Virtual Clinics are full?
More partners sites are under development, so be sure to check out our website for more information about future sites and additional Virtual Clinics.
Why should I participate?
In addition to getting free legal advice, you will be helping us test the use of new technology to offer more free legal services by volunteer attorneys to the community.
