Episode 54: How Pro Bono Work Can Benefit Your Paralegal Career

In this solo episode of the Paralegals on Fire! Podcast Show, Ann Pearson shares her experience doing pro bono work and how it can benefit your paralegal career.

Some of the benefits of adding pro bono work include:

  • Exposure to other types of work will broaden your knowledge and paralegal skills.
  • You get the opportunity to network and meet other paralegals and attorneys outside your organization.
  • You might get billable hour credit if you work for a law firm that encourages pro bono work.
  • And so much more!
