UT Law Magazine – UT Law Pro Bono Program Sends Thirty-Three Law Students to the Rio Grande Valley

On January 9–14, 2011, thirty-three students and four faculty members from the University of Texas School of Law spent the last week of their winter break in the Texas Rio Grande Valley helping to provide pro bono legal assistance in underserved communities.

The students and faculty members fanned out across the Valley from San Carlos to South Padre Island to work on a variety of legal matters under the auspices of three local nonprofits: Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, the South Texas Civil Rights Project, and the South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project (ProBAR). The trip was organized by the law school’s Pro Bono Program, a project of the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law, and a law student organization, Pro Bono in January.
