Pro Bono

Rule 6.1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct state in part that a "lawyer should aspire to render at least 50 hours of pro bono publico legal services per year." The first comment to that rule notes that "{e}very lawyer, regardless of professional prominence or professional work load, has a responsibility to provide legal services to those unable to pay, and personal involvement in the problems of the disadvantaged can be one of the most rewarding experiences in the life of a lawyer." The MBA has many ways for lawyers to fulfill their pro bono obligation. In addition, doing pro bono can help you develop your skills and grow your practice.

From the latest developments in your area of practice to how to successfully practice law, the MBA and its sections can help you stay up-to-date.
