Become a Pro Bono Lawyer
Attention, lawyers! Unchained invites you to help unchain a woman or girl from a marriage she didn’t choose – whether or not you have relevant law experience.
More than 100 attorneys across the US, including from some of the largest law firms in the world, have joined Unchained’s team of Pro Bono Attorneys to help women and girls fleeing from forced marriages. Some have relevant legal experience; many do not. Almost all say their pro bono work for Unchained clients is the most rewarding work they’ve ever done. Read some of their stories by clicking on their photos (to the right).
