Pro bono at Akron Law
The University of Akron School of Law recognizes the important role that our law students serve in our community to ensure access to justice for all. The law school's pro bono/community service requirement is a reflection of that commitment. Our students have been generous in committing their time to serve others. For the 2019-2020 academic year, the total hours were 9,400.
