Ways to Give Back

With all of the efforts being made to avoid the spread of COVID-19, many CMBA members are left with a drive to help and do good, but we’re prevented from our usual ways of reaching out in order to maintain social distancing.

Volunteer Today!

Join the more than 1,000 lawyers and legal professionals giving back to our community each year by providing volunteer service in a CMBA pro bono or public outreach program. No matter what your level of experience, schedule or interest, we have a menu of volunteer opportunities that has something for you.

Share your legal skills. Our pro bono legal assistance programs also offer volunteers an opportunity to earn CLE credit, as outlined in Rule X of the Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio.  

Take time to invest in Cleveland's youth by participating in our law-related education programs for citizens of all ages.

  • Join a 3Rs team and visit the high school classroom to help students learn about the U.S. Constitution and develop career planning skills. 
  • Volunteer with Say Yes to provide free legal assistance for Cleveland students and their families, in a partnership between the CMBA and Legal Aid.
  • Mentor students in high school or college who are interested in careers in the law through diversity pipeline programs like the Summer Legal Academy and Stokes Scholars Program
  • Serve as a team legal advisor or competition judge for the Cleveland Mock Trial or the Ohio Mock Trial for students in Cleveland and high schools throughout Northeast Ohio.

Each volunteer program offers training, mentors, curriculum, materials, and other support to help ensure a satisfying and successful experience.
