DePaul College of Law recognizes the intrinsic value of pro bono and
community service work and is committed to shaping lawyers with a
lifelong commitment to pro bono work and serving others. Thus, DePaul
College of Law encourages all students to complete and report at least
50 hours of service during their time at DePaul. Students who meet this
50 hour aspirational goal qualify for a prestigious service award
presented at a reception in the spring.
Students should report their service hours using PBCSI's electronic reporting system through Campus Connect. After logging onto Campus Connect, students should click on "For Students" and then "Pro Bono Reporting."
Students may report their hours as often as they like, but all
hours are due at the end of the semester in which they were completed.
To review what hours count toward PBCSI's service awards, please review PBCSI's Reporting and Award Guidelines. Students should also refer to the Guidelines to learn more about PBCSI's various service awards and their requirements.
