Paladin Partners with the Department of Justice to expand its pro bono technology to all DOJ attorneys

Pro bono legal technology company Paladin and the Department of Justice’s Office for Access to Justice today (23 October) launched a partnership that will provide every DOJ attorney with access to Paladin to boost pro bono engagement.

Through the tech platform, called the DOJ Pro Bono Portal, prospective volunteers will be able to search for local opportunities that are vetted for federal employees, sign up for individual matters or clinics, and connect with both legal services organizations and the ATJ pro bono team more quickly to get started. Legal services organizations will also be able to reach a wider pool of volunteer attorneys.

With Paladin’s current network of over 250 legal services organizations, top AmLaw firms, Fortune 500s, and bar associations, working with the Department of Justice is described as a powerful next step to amplify pro bono legal services across the country and bring a unified tech platform to each state.

“Laura Klein has been a trailblazer in building out the Federal Government Pro Bono Program, and it’s an honor to work with her and Lara Eilhardt to involve even more government attorneys in pro bono work. The impact of this partnership will be monumental,” says Kristen Sonday, Paladin’s co-founder and CEO.
