A Note from the Director
It is hard to believe that it was only two years ago when the North Carolina Pro Bono Resource Center launched. The Resource Center has grown much in that time, collaborating on new projects, launching a statewide clearinghouse of available opportunities at ncprobono.org, hosting pro bono regional councils, and bringing voluntary pro bono reporting to North Carolina. It has been an exciting two years – and the growth continues!
We at the Resource Center are delighted to share with you the latest addition to our pro bono team. B. Leigh Wicclair will be spearheading the efforts of the Resource Center to develop new pro bono projects for volunteer attorneys; we are excited for the leadership and expertise she will bring to this work. Leigh comes to us from Philadelphia, PA, where she spent the last seven years focused on the intersection of social justice and criminal justice through her work as a public defender, EJW Fellow with Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity, and Judicial Law Clerk for the PA First Judicial District Court of Common Pleas.
Please welcome Leigh to North Carolina’s pro bono community – she can be reached at email@example.com.

Director, NC Pro Bono Resource Center
