Call for Necessary Engagement in Community & Timely Response (CNECT)  is one way students at Berkeley Law can engage in pro bono legal services.  CNECT projects are initiated by our community partner legal services organizations.  CNECT partners identify current legal needs that Berkeley Law students can respond to with pro bono support and the Berkeley Law Pro Bono Program facilitates this engagement.

Berkeley Law students, staff, and faculty interested in learning about CNECT pro bono opportunities at this time and in the future should sign up to join the Public Interest/Pro Bono (PIPB) Opportunities List below.  CNECT is a dynamic program and projects will be announced through the PIPB List as the need arises throughout the school year.
