UCI Law Names Pro Bono Program in Honor of Michael Ermer
The University of California, Irvine School of Law (UCI Law) announced the naming of its pro bono program in recognition of partner emeritus Michael G. Ermer. The program will now be known as the Michael G. Ermer Pro Bono Program, in tribute to Mike’s dedication to public service and his significant contributions and long support of UCI Law's public service law programs.
UCI Law's pro bono program embodies the school’s commitment to public service and experiential learning. Open to all UCI Law students, the program provides students an opportunity to offer legal services to underserved communities under the guidance and supervision of licensed attorneys and faculty members. Since its inception in 2009, UCI Law students have collectively contributed over 150,000 hours of pro bono work. More than 90 percent of students actively participate in pro bono work at some point during their time at UCI Law — with over 100 pro bono projects available each semester — providing crucial assistance to underserved individuals.
