Justice For All

Justice For All Committee (JFA)

The Justice For All Committee serves in an advisory capacity as the umbrella group over the CMBA's pro bono legal service, public law-related education, and public service programs. The Committee's goals are:

  • to provide oversight, support, and evaluation of JFA programs;
  • to promote volunteer participation in pro bono and community service;
  • to work with community partners, including The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland and the courts,
  • to understand and address unmet legal needs in our community; and
  • to evaluate proposals for new CMBA programs to address unmet needs.  

The Committee also helps CMBA Sections as needed with their pro bono initiatives and recognizes outstanding volunteer service by nominating recipients for the annual Justice For All Volunteer of the Year Award (see details below). 

Looking to volunteer? Learn more about JFA initiatives on our Pro Bono & Community Programs Outreach page.

For more information about this committee, please contact Jessica Paine, Director of Community Programs.

JFA Volunteer of the Year

Each year JFA honors volunteers who have provided exemplary service to the Cleveland community in pro bono and public service programs. The Award is a way to recognize those who give their time and expertise in meaningful and significant ways throughout the year.
