Welcome to lowbono.org
Sponsored by the Law School Consortium Project
Lowbono.org provides a forum for the support, training, and mentoring of solo and small firm lawyers who provide discounted, or "low bono," legal services to underrepresented communities. These attorneys are graduates of, in collaboration with, Law School Consortium Project member law schools.
Lowbono.org serves this community of public interest attorneys by creating an internet portal that contains valuable attorney resources, including:
- Substantive Legal Information
- News and Events
- Forms and Briefs
- Solo and Small Firm Best Practices
- Law Office Management Tips
- Technology Reviews
- Marketing and Outreach Information
- Funding Resources
Lowbono.org also allows for more effective communication and collaboration among law students, recently graduated and experienced attorneys and mentors, and LSCP member law schools across the country.
Lowbono.org is a collaborative project of the Law School Consortium Project and its member law schools. Lowbono.org can be used by solo and small firm practitioners and public interest law school programs with missions to serve underrepresented communities. Lowbono.org is supported by Probono.net. While most of Lowbono.org is open to Probono Net members who join lowbono.org, some parts of the site (e.g., listservs) are closed.

LSCP Member Law Schools
The Law School Consortium Project member law schools include:
The Law School Consortium Project is an innovative national non-profit increasing the affordability and accessibility of legal services to low and middle income individuals. Utilizing social entrepreneurship philosophy, we work with law schools to support alumnae who have solo and small firm community based and oriented law practices. These lawyers supplement their pro bono and full fee work by providing "low bono" - discounted or low fee - legal services to their clients. The average LSCP solo/small firm practitioner has a law practice that provides 42% low bono work, 14% pro bono work, 36% full fee work and the remaining as fee-shifting cases.
Law schools support their graduates who are engaged in low bono practices by working with the LSCP to provide training, mentoring, networking and other general support. Each LSCP Member School is responsible for developing their unique practitioner program and network to provide resources and services to solo and small-firm lawyers who are committed to serving low and moderate-income individuals and communities.
