2008 New Orleans Team

Our 2008 New Orleans team is in full force and very excited about our upcoming trip this Winter Break! This year our team consists of 22 individuals (listed below) who will travel to New Orleans from December 14 - December 19 to help with ongoing post-Katrina problems. Half of our students will partner with the New Orleans Pro Bono Project, helping low-income clients handle family law issues that have arisen because of Katrina. The other half of our students will work at the Orleans Public Defenders Office, interviewing potential clients whose records were lost during Katrina.

We would really appreciate your support! Here are ways that you can donate to help subsidize our travel costs:

1. You may write a check payable to UNC School of Law, with “Pro Bono Discretionary Fund” in the memo line. Checks can be sent to: UNC School of Law Pro Bono Program, c/o Dean Sylvia Novinsky, Campus Box #8880, Chapel Hill, NC 27599.

2. Or you may donate online at After selecting your method of payment, please select “School of Law” as the University Designation, “Other” as the University Fund, and then indicate “Pro Bono Discretionary Fund” in the box for Other Instructions below that.
