National Pro Bono Celebration Week


The National Pro Bono Celebration, created by The ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service, focuses the nation's attention on the increased need for pro bono services during these challenging economic times and celebrates the outstanding work of lawyers who volunteer their services throughout the year. It is essential that the entire legal community engage in conversation and action that results in equal access to justice for all. The energy generated by the National Pro Bono Celebration is a powerful force that helps us build a just legal system.
