We understand the perceived and real concerns about—and the true benefits of—pro bono legal service. You can do it. We can help.
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.
Visit the Pro Bono | Access to Justice portal to access case, clinic and remote volunteer opportunities across the state—or check in with these legal services organizations in Georgia for pro bono opportunities with your preferred legal services organization.
The State Bar of Georgia's Access to Justice Committee is on the road with its message about access to justice and pro bono. The #ProBonoRoadShow is a one-hour Professionalism CLE program available to local and voluntary bars across the state.
Panelists will discuss how attorneys can ethically and professionally incorporate pro bono work into their current practices. Statewide and local initiatives will be highlighted as well, with the presentation tailored to the local or voluntary bar association.
Contact us to bring the Road Show to your local or voluntary bar.
