VLP was created by Nebraska lawyers with a common passion―an unwavering commitment to pursue equal justice under the law for Nebraskans who, because of social and economic barriers, cannot access the courts and our system of justice. For more than 35 years, VLP has helped Nebraska lawyers fulfill their professional responsibility to render pro bono legal services.
VLP develops and manages pro bono programs that are convenient, rewarding and impactful. Although programs have adapted and changed over the years, VLP’s mission remains unchanged. VLP receives support from the Nebraska Lawyers Foundation. Grants and the generous donations from lawyers, law firms, and others make pro bono happen.
