The University of Miami School of Law won the “MVP Pro Bono Award” for matching the most students with its own alumni as part of The Florida Bar Foundation’s 2022 Florida Pro Bono Law School Challenge in April.

For the second year in a row, Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law won for most student engagement and Ave Maria School of Law won for the most alumni engagement.

“Through the Law School Challenge, 177 pro bono cases were handled by lawyer and student teams throughout the state,” said Connie Bookman, the Foundation’s president. “We are encouraged by the volunteer efforts put forth by law students from each of our state’s 11 schools and impressed by the willingness of lawyers to mentor and give of their time and talent to needy clients.”
