THE COURT OF APPEALS PRO BONO REPRESENTATION PROGRAM
On its own motion, the Court may assign a case involving a self-represented party to another program, the Court of Appeals
Pro Bono Representation Program
. The mission of that program is to provide pro bono counsel to pro se parties in civil and juvenile cases identified by the Court in which briefing and argument by counsel would benefit the Court's consideration of the matter. Cases selected for the program typically present issues of first impression or some considerable complexity or for some other reason warrant additional briefing. (An unrepresented party cannot apply to participate in the program; only cases identified on the Court's own initiative will be placed in the program.)
