For a targeted program of outreach and legal assistance to youth and family-serving nonprofit organizations in 5 Northeast New Jersey Counties, providing their full range of legal assistance and education services to these agencies.

This initiative is based on their lawyers’ perceptions that many clients’ corporate documents and policies may need to be reviewed, and that Board Members may not fully understand their roles and responsibilities – particularly new recruits to clients’ boards. Pro Bono Partnership provides pro bono, legal technical assistance to nonprofit organizations.
