New York Lawyers for the Public Interest’s mission is to advance equality and civil rights, with a focus on health justice, disability rights and environmental justice, through the power of community lawyering and partnerships with the private bar. The Pro Bono Clearinghouse, a department of NYLPI, connects innovative and impactful nonprofit organizations with free legal services by drawing on volunteer lawyers from New York’s most prestigious law firms and corporate legal departments.
Works with the following types of organizations

Pro Bono Matching
We connect nonprofit organizations with free legal services by drawing on volunteer lawyers from New York’s most prestigious law firms and corporate legal departments.
Every month we produce a series of capacity building workshops for nonprofit leaders. These sessions focus on topics such as: advocacy and lobbying, fundraising, fiscal sponsorship, just to name a few.
In order to make capacity building resources easily available, we have an online library full of resources. We currently have guides titled: (1) Thinking of Starting a Nonprofit?; (2) Considering Fiscal Sponsorship?; (3) Want to Start a Social Enterprise?, and we plan to release a number of additional guides in 2020.
