The Equal Access to Justice Champions Program was started by the Houston Bar Association in 2006 to help ensure placement of Houston Volunteer Lawyers cases with pro bono volunteers.

Firms, Corporate Legal Departments, and Solo Practitioners who are interested in participating in the Champions Program pledge to accept, annually, one pro bono case for every five lawyers in their Houston office.
