Pro Bono Commitment to Community Award
Students are invited to sign the UDSL Commitment to Community pledge through which you promise to complete at least 50 hours of pro bono work and community service during your time at the law school. Up to 10 hours of this total may come in the form of general community service work for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Hospice, etc. The Office of the Dean of Students maintains a list of preapproved programs for which you may receive credit for pro bono efforts. If you wish to have a pro bono program added to the list, contact Dean Shaw.
The School of Law honors students who contributed at least 50 hours of community service and pro bono work with the Pro Bono Commitment to Community Award. Award winners receive a notation on their transcripts and are entitled to wear a special cord at graduation. In the last three years, Dayton Law students have contributed approximately 30,000 hours of community service during their time in law school.
