Pro Bono As We See It
October 19, 2017


We are #ProBonoProud and celebrated outstanding achievements in pro bono service and strengthening access to justice last month at our own Annual Dinner. Sensitively recognizing pro bono efforts has the power to sustain and transform pro bono programs. In addition to being meaningful for deserving individuals, and teams to be acknowledged, doing so can be educational, inspiring, and help recruit newcomers to the pro bono community.

The ABA’s 2017 National Celebration of Pro Bono is right around the corner. From October 22 to October 28, the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service will be encouraging greater participation in pro bono work by lawyers nationwide and to use the week as a tool to enhance access to justice for all. You can find National Pro Bono Celebration events across the country and near you by using the 2017 Events Map. Check out for more information about the Celebration such as pro bono stories, resources, and more.

As they say: “Do Good. Do Justice. Do Pro Bono.”
