When Hiring Lawyers need help with their practice, they will post Projects on Lawyer Exchange. To browse Available Projects, simply log in to Lawyer Exchange, and you will be directed to our Project board.

(You can also click “Available Projects” at the top of your screen).

Browsing Projects

When browsing Projects, you can either navigate the full list or set filters by state. You can also hide projects if you no longer wish to see them on your board. You can un-hide projects at any time if you would like them to appear in your main view again; you can still submit proposals to Hidden Projects.
