How To Apply

The Spring 2018 SLPS Application is available here. It is due January 11, 2018.

Required Liability Waiver

UC Berkeley requires that students sign a liability waiver for all off-campus activity that is not required by a class. This includes SLPS.  All new SLPS participants must sign a waiver and email it to probono@law.berkeley.edu by January 31, 2018. Students who do not sign and submit a waiver by January 31 will not be able to participate in SLPS. You can download the waiver form here. You can use a free scanner app on your phone (e.g., Scanner Pro) to scan your form.

Informational Materials

  • A description of the different projects, estimated time commitments, and contact information is available here.
  • The very helpful SLPS Roadmap–a guide to SLPS organized by categories such as area of law and estimated time commitment–is available here. Many SLPS require a significant time commitment. Please consider this in selecting your extracurricular activities.
  • For information regarding other (non-SLPS) pro bono opportunities, please see Other Community Pro Bono Opportunities.

Mandatory Orientation 

There will be a mandatory SLPS Orientation on January 29th at 12:45. Please plan on attending. 

For questions and additional information, please contact Diana DiGennaro, the Pro Bono Program Director, at probono@law.berkeley.edu.
