50 Is the Number
The State Bar of Georgia encourages lawyers to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono services each year and contribute financially to legal aid and pro bono programs. Volunteer lawyers across the state make a difference for people who otherwise cannot afford representation to resolve a critical legal problem. Georgia Bar Rule 6.1 provides information on hours and service types that are considered pro bono activities.
