Connecticut’s most vulnerable residents need your legal expertise!

Will you answer the call to provide pro bono civil legal services to low-income Connecticut residents?

CBA Pro Bono Connect

We have a serious access to justice gap in Connecticut, now amplified by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At any given time in Connecticut:

  • More than 90% of tenants face eviction from their homes without the assistance of counsel, and typically must litigate against a represented party
  • More than 85% of family cases involve at least one self-represented party
  • 73% of homeowners face foreclosure without the assistance of counsel

Thousands of Connecticut families face serious benefits, consumer, education, family, housing and immigration issues without the legal expertise necessary to navigate those complicated and overwhelming problems.
