“Equal justice under the law . . . it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system exists . . . it is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status.”
-U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell, Jr.

Clinical courses during law school are a great way to provide legal services to persons in need and to learn many important skills for practicing law. If you earn academic credit for work done as part of a law school clinic, however, it does not count as pro bono. (If you continue helping on a case after the clinic semester is done, that additional, uncompensated work does count.)
