people shaking hands Let's help keep the wheels of justice turning

Ensuring justice for all is a community effort. Courts, prosecutors, law enforcement and community groups all play a very active and direct role in the judicial process. Did you know that there are hundreds of opportunities for you to get involved?

Whether you serve as an advocate for an abused or neglected child or serve on a Foster Care Review Board, you could make a profound difference. We also have many opportunities to serve on advisory committees and commissions.

Pro Bono Opportunities

The State Bar of Arizona lists numerous opportunities for Arizona attorneys to give back to their communities through pro bono work. The rules of the Arizona Supreme Court allow out-of-state or retired attorneys to perform legal work as a volunteer, as long as that work is performed through an approved, non-profit legal service organization.
