Vault Guide to Law Firm Pro Bono Programs 2017 Edition

Service to clients who cannot afford legal counsel has been an ethical imperative of lawyers dating back to the creation of the legal profession. Over the course of the last few decades, large U.S. law firms collectively have devoted increasing resources to pro bono work, and also to the management and administration of those efforts. Nearly all have developed their own unique culture of service and methods of administration. This book was developed to provide law students and lawyers with the essential objective information necessary to make an informed evaluation of these firms’ pro bono culture and activities.
