POWER Act Information/Events

The POWER Act is the acronym for "Pro Bono Work to Empower and Represent Act of 2018" (P. L. 115-237) that Congress passed on September 4, 2018. The primary goal of the POWER Act is for the U.S. district courts to partner with a local, tribal, or territorial domestic abuse service provider and a local volunteer lawyer project to promote pro bono legal services as a way to empower survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and to engage citizens in assisting those survivors.

The following CLE materials from past POWER Act presentation/CLEs are provided for pro bono lawyers interested in the various opportunities available for volunteer work, applicable ethics rules, and information about the participating non-profit agencies.
