OLAF’s pro bono vision is for all Ohio lawyers and law students to have an opportunity to assist low income and disadvantaged Ohioans with their civil legal problems – gaining professional satisfaction by ensuring equal justice for all and strengthening communities.

OLAF’s pro bono mission is three-fold.

– First, the Foundation provides a statewide leadership role in seeking to increase pro bono participation in the delivery of civil legal services to the poor and disadvantaged.

– Second, the Foundation is a catalyst and source of support for the development of new statewide and local pro bono initiatives.

– Finally, the Foundation works to increase the capacity of existing programs, including legal aid societies and bar associations, to more efficiently and effectively engage volunteers.
