Brown Rudnick invests its time, resources and advocacy to support education in underserved communities. Through our Center for the Public Interest and Charitable Foundation, we sponsor innovative educational initiatives that keep kids interested in school and engaged in their communities.
Brown Rudnick’s pro bono work is an illustration of the legal profession at its most noble – epitomizing a premier law firm undertaking a philanthropic endeavor where the vision is bold and the results are broad, deep and profound for both the client and the firm.
Through the Center, Brown Rudnick encourages and coordinates involvement in the communities where the law firm is located. Often we are able to connect volunteers to not-for-profit organizations receiving Relationship Grants from the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation, as well as with other worthy causes.
Throughout Brown Rudnick's history, the Firm has actively encouraged all of its professionals to provide legal services pro bono publico to persons or causes in need of quality legal representation. The resolution of the American Bar Association House of Delegates expresses our point of view succinctly: "It is the basic responsibility of each lawyer engaged in the practice of law to provide public interest legal services without fee or at a substantially reduced fee."
