Welcome to the HOPE Public Interest Resource Center at Miami Law!

In addition to the exceptional faculty, diverse curriculum and fascinating city, Miami Law offers students a unique opportunity to learn and live in a community dedicated to access to justice. HOPE serves as the first stop for students with an interest in developing legal advocacy skills while serving others. Through an array of outreach and advocacy projects, HOPE initiatives serve individuals and communities locally, nationally and internationally.

HOPE's team of attorneys oversee the Public Interest Leadership Board and direct the Miami Scholars and HOPE Fellows programs. Our Pro Bono Legal Research Project teams students with exceptional attorneys dedicated to serving clients and communities in need. These are but a few of the ways in which students may become involved.

In addition, HOPE helps to educate students about the range of opportunities at Miami Law including extraordinary array of clinics, programs, externships and courses with field components, to ensure that each and every student has a way to further his/her commitment to social justice.

We look forward to your involvement with HOPE at Miami Law. It is our mission to instill a pro bono ethic in all of our students. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us at
