HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER ATTORNEY

Volunteer Attorneys for Rural Nevadans (VARN) would not exist without the participation of volunteer attorneys. The volunteer attorneys that participate in the VARN pro bono program provide direct legal services, conduct VARN’s self-help divorce clinics and serve as mentors to less experienced attorneys.

The American Bar Association (ABA) encourages attorneys to perform a minimum of 50 hours annually of pro bono services. VARN encourages all attorneys to participate in its pro bono program by accepting at least two (2) cases per year or providing ten (10) hours of pro bono services by conducting VARN’s self help divorce clinics or by serving as a mentor to less experienced attorneys.
You are encouraged to participate in VARN’s pro bono program and help those less fortunate in our communities by providing legal services. VARN honors those attorneys who have provided the most pro bono hours or accepted the most pro bono cases every year at the annual reception for the Nevada State Bar Board of Governors, hosted by the First Judicial District Bar Association at the
Nevada Supreme Court.

Upon becoming a volunteer attorney, VARN will provide you with guidelines and information for handling cases or providing other pro bono services through the VARN pro bono program. For more information and to complete an application to become a volunteer attorney, Click here
