Richard and Ginni Mithoff Pro Bono Program

The vision for the Richard and Ginni Mithoff Pro Bono Program at Texas Law is that students will engage in pro bono work to increase access to justice, build on their lawyering skills, and develop a lifetime commitment to providing legal services to those in need.


“Every lawyer, regardless of professional prominence or professional workload, should find time to participate in or otherwise support the provision of legal services to the disadvantaged. The provision of free legal services to those unable to pay reasonable fees is a moral obligation of each lawyer as well as the profession generally.”
