Pro Bono Representation Program

(page last modified 8/6/20)

The Arizona Court of Appeals Pro Bono Program (“Program”) was originally established through Administrative Order 2014-04 and provides pro bono counsel to self-represented parties in appeals and special actions selected by the Court to assist it in resolving those Appeals more effectively.  The goal of the Program is to provide pro bono counsel to self-represented parties in cases selected by the Court in which briefing and argument by counsel would benefit the Court’s consideration. Cases presenting an issue of first impression or some complexity or cases otherwise warranting more developed briefing and oral argument are selected for the Program.  Selection of a case for the Program does not constitute an opinion by the Court about the merits of the case. 

Administrative Order 2020-06 expanded the Program to allow self-represented parties to request that the court consider an appeal for the Program by filing a Request to Participate in the Pro Bono Program form in the relevant appeal.
