DePaul College of Law’s 3rd Annual 1L Service Day is a chance for DePaul College of Law’s incoming 1Ls to get to know fellow classmates while volunteering in the community. Volunteer projects include preparing and serving a meal and making beds at a homeless shelter, organizing a classroom library at a legal-themed charter high school, and playing games and interacting with seniors and organizing clothing donations for the homeless, to name just a few. Volunteers should wear clothing that they are not afraid to get dirty!
The 1L Service Day will start in the DePaul Center cafeteria where volunteers will check in, eat a light breakfast, and hear words of inspiration before heading out to their sites. Volunteers should bring a bagged lunch, water bottle, and Ventra pass for public transportation. Light breakfast provided.
Please RSVP by Friday, August 15, 2014

When & Where
DePaul Pro Bono & Community Service Initiative
The Pro Bono & Community Service Initiative (“PBCSI”) helps law students volunteer with legal aid agencies and community organizations that serve the needs of underserved people. PBCSI has six partner agencies where law students can volunteer and will also assist students in finding a volunteer site, legal or non-legal, that fits his or her interests and schedule. PBCSI offers six annual “Donate-A-Day” projects that allow students, alumni, staff, and faculty to volunteer on a full or half-day project without making a long-term commitment. PBCSI also runs the Neighborhood Legal Assistance Project, which is a pro bono legal-help desk to assist the homeless. Each DePaul law student is encouraged to complete and report at least 50 hours of service while at DePaul. Students who meet this aspirational goal are eligible for a service award.
PBCSI is a project of the Center for Public Interest Law and works in close collaboration with University Ministry. PBCSI is managed by an attorney director and three to four student leaders.
