DISCLAIMER: Signing up to be a volunteer will require passage of a background check and any volunteer who is not a court-certified interpreter will be required to attend an introductory workshop prior to being assigned to volunteer with an attorney.
Volunteer interpreters are assigned on an as-needed basis. Please be aware that the majority of our non-English speaking pro bono clients are in need of Spanish-language services. Therefore, if you sign up to be a non-Spanish language interpreter, it may be a while before we request your services. Please reach out to Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada’s Pro Bono Project at if you are no longer able to serve as a volunteer.

CERTIFICATION: By submitting this online intake form, you certify that you have answered the questions in good faith, have reviewed the self-assessment, and are confident in your ability to provide language interpretation services as a volunteer for pro bono attorneys.
