WCBA Public Service Committee

Wake County Bar Association Public Service Committee

Who we are: We are an exciting and vibrant group of Wake County lawyers who enjoy a good time and providing volunteer and service opportunities for our members. 

What we’re about: "The Public Service Committee of the Wake County Bar Association provides opportunities for our members to volunteer on a personal (community service) and professional (pro bono service) level to impact the lives of people living in Wake County."

How we’re organized: We are organized by subcommittee. The subcommittees make plans and recommendations for the full committee to discuss and adopt. 

Education Outreach Subcommittee: The Rule of Law High School Conference is the signature program of this subcommittee. This conference brings together high school students to discuss various aspects and applications of the Rule of Law with lawyers, judges, law professors and district attorneys, in interactive ways. The committee will also explore developing The People's Law School geared towards educating adults in Wake County on various, practical aspects of the law. 

Community Service Subcommittee: This subcommittee oversees the initiation and implementation of several signature programs as well as developing new opportunities for Wake County attorneys to come together for the good of the community. Events such as yard clean up day at the Salvation Army, Race for the Cure, food drives for the Food Bank and Lunch with a Lawyer involve many Wake County attorneys and their families. We'll be scheduling quarterly community service events.  

Communications Subcommittee: This subcommittee oversees our messaging and communications with the WCBA and the community at large. We are working to improve and expand our webpage. This year, we'll add a Public Service/Pro Bono Service Award to be given later this year.

Pro Bono Subcommittee: The hallmark of this subcommittee is to make connections for Wake County lawyers, providing them with pro bono opportunities to enable them to meet their Rule 6.1 aspirational goals. We are working closely with Campbell Law School to make the Campbell Connection with our lawyers and their students to help with pro bono matters. We also work with Legal Aid of North Carolina and contribute to North Carolina Bar Association programs 4ALL Service Day and Call 4ALL. 

What we’ve done: Provided opportunities to raise money for breast cancer research through the Komen Race for the Cure, host high school students at the Rule of Law High School Conference, mentor area high school students through our Lunch with a Lawyer program, volunteer in schools and volunteer at Legal Aid and other agencies providing free legal services.
