We invite all William & Mary law students to register as volunteers:

  • Volunteers will do all their work remotely at this time.
  • Main volunteer duties include establishing contact with landlords via e-mail and obtaining relevant documents from tenants to help stop or delay evictions (client intake).
  • Volunteers can contribute as much or little time as they can! You make your schedule!

To volunteer with GRBF and start doing some Pro Bono, follow these steps:
