The Northeast Chapter of ACC provides pro bono services to the communities in which we work and live in the following ways:
1) We train and provide mediators for Small Claims mediations in the Woburn and Dedham District Courts. We also provide mediators for Summary Process in Woburn and Trial Docket in Dedham. Mediation training is ongoing, and services are provided to both courts on a weekly basis. 2) We have partnered with Mintz Levin, our Platinum Pro Bono sponsor for 2014, to co-host the Clinic in a BoxSM program, licensed through Corporate Pro Bono. This is a very successful program where in half a day, we meet with and provide assistance to local nonprofits who need legal help or advice. Following are links to blogs written about these two clinics: Pro Bono Through the Fog Boston Pro Bono Clinic a Smashing Success If you would like any more information, please feel free to contact Christine Hughes or David Lintz, Co-Chairs, Pro Bono Publico Committee, ACC-Northeast Chapter.
Other Pro Bono Opportunities Members who seek other pro bono opportunities may contact two excellent organizations in the Boston area, The Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston, who trains and places individuals for non-profit board service. Lawyers Clearinghouse, which has a large roster of non-profits seeking legal assistance on transactional matters, homeless individuals seeking legal advice, and also offers workshops and training. Both would be delighted to hear from ACC-Northeast members.
