Bradley Arant Boult Cummings is strongly committed to pro bono work and its commitment to civic, charitable and community service is of vital importance to our firm and its attorneys and staff. Bradley Arant Boult Cummings pro bono service includes representation of indigent individuals and non-profit organizations, and involvement in matters of broad public concern. The firm's pro bono activities are overseen by our Pro Bono Committee that is charged with promoting participation in pro bono activities, coordinating those activities, and approving pro bono representations. Douglas Arant Public Interest Fellowship
Named for one of the firm's founding partners whose life-long commitment to pro bono service, left an enduring mark on the numerous organizations and people he served, the Douglas Arant Public Interest Fellowship offers a law student who works with Bradley Arant during the summer the opportunity to spend time with a public service organization. The summer associate who applies for and is selected to receive the Fellowship, works a minimum of six weeks in one of the firm's offices, and a minimum of four weeks for a public service organization chosen by the summer associate and approved by the firm's Pro Bono Committee. The number of fellowships granted each year is limited and priority is given to second year law students. The summer associate is compensated by the firm while working for the public service organization just as if he or she is working in one of the firm's offices. Some of the worthy organizations that have been approved as partners in our Fellowship program include the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Equal Justice Initiative of Alabama (death penalty representation), and the US Attorney’s office.
