“Legal aid handles cases that affect basic human needs. A pro bono attorney can save a family’s home in the matter of a few hours, or keep someone safe from an abuser. Even working on one case in a year has a measureable impact on a person’s life.”
“My Fellowship made it quite clear to me that pro bono is an essential component of my day to day life and that it is possible to balance pro bono in an otherwise busy schedule.”
“I think it is important that everyone get involved and help end bullying, but I believe lawyers are in the best position to make a difference. Our profession has a history of making a difference and changing the nation for the better of all its people. The legal profession needs to take the next step in ending bullying.”
