Want to do appellate pro bono work? The U.S. Fifth Circuit is looking for you. Here’s the court’s description of its new pro bono program:
The [Fifth Circuit] Pro Bono Program assists the Court by facilitating the appointment of pro bono counsel to represent pro se litigants. Pro Bono Panel members will, at the Court’s invitation, be appointed in civil appeals that, for example, present issues of first impression, complex facts or legal questions, or potentially meritorious claims warranting further briefing and/or oral argument.
