It's Pro Bono Week!

Pro bono work is a professional responsibility and an individual ethical commitment of each lawyer. The BLS Pro Bono Committee invites you to celebrate with us National Pro Bono Week with us. There is an increasing need for pro bono services during the current harsh economic times, particularly now with the expected tsunami of evictions and foreclosure actions as a result of the ongoing pandemic. BLS members need to stand ready for the unprecedented response of attorneys to meet this demand.

Every October since 2009, legal organizations across America participate in the National Celebration of Pro Bono to draw attention to the need for pro bono participation, and to thank those who give their time year round. The BLS is no different. Celebrate! Participate! Get involved! Take the Pledge!
