Attorneys who have provided at least 50 hours of qualifying pro bono services in 2021 are eligible for the 2021 Wisconsin Pro Bono Honor Society. Honorees will be recognized on the Access to Justice Commission website and in the June 2022 issue of Wisconsin Lawyer™ magazine.
All you need to do to be recognized is certify that you or another attorney whom you know met the program’s standard. Find out more about the Pro Bono Honor Society and find instructions for certification here. The deadline to certify is February 28, 2022.
Law firms that want to nominate their qualifying attorneys can send an Excel spreadsheet with the names of the attorneys and their State Bar numbers to Jeff Brown.
The State Bar of Wisconsin’s pro bono portal is a great way to find the right volunteer opportunity.
