Reflecting on the Importance of Pro Bono Service

At the Commission on Professionalism, we are charged to connect lawyers and inspire change. Each October, Illinois lawyers reflect on the importance of pro bono service. In fact, many attorneys across the country deliberately set time aside to give back to those in need. Take this Illinois lawyer for example who recently answered the call to serve.

Through our weekly blog postsnews itemsmonthly e-newsletter, and even our educational programming – we provide the legal community with insight into the access to justice gap, promote upcoming pro bono opportunities for attorneys, and remind practicing lawyers of the core values that make the law more than just a career – but a profession.
