700 Pro Bono Events Scheduled Nationwide

Much like lawyers in Tennessee, attorneys across the country are honoring their responsibility to the legal profession and local communities by participating in annual pro bono celebrations. Nationally, the American Bar Association's Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service is sponsoring National Pro Bono Celebration, Oct.21-27,  as part of Celebrate Pro Bono Month. “The National Pro Bono Celebration focuses the nation's attention on the increased need for pro bono services during these challenging economic times, and celebrates the outstanding work of lawyers who volunteer their services throughout the year,"  ABA President Laurel Bellows said. More than 700 pro bono events will take place during the month throughout the nation. Read more at Lawyer Monthly or view the list of Celebrate Pro Bono events in Tennessee.
