Richard and Ginni Mithoff Pro Bono Program

Students working at pro bono wills clinic

The Richard and Ginni Mithoff Pro Bono Program offers pro bono opportunities to all students at Texas Law and promotes an ethic of service throughout the law school.

The Mithoff Program empowers students to use their developing legal knowledge and skills to address unmet legal needs in the community starting as early as their first semester at Texas Law. Students often get as much back from these projects as they give, through opportunities to explore diverse areas of substantive law and develop practical lawyering skills.

The Mithoff Program also introduces students to the legal profession’s tradition and ethical obligation of pro bono service, and helps students incorporate a commitment to service into their professional identities.

The Mithoff Program is part of the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law and plays a central role in fulfilling the Justice Center’s mission to promote equal justice for all and to support public service in the legal profession.
