Program Details: 

Every October since 2009, legal organizations across the country have participated in the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service's National Celebration of Pro Bono.  The Committee chose to launch the National Celebration of Pro Bono because of the increasing need for pro bono services during harsh economic times and the unprecedented response of attorneys to meet this demand. This year the focus of Celebrate Pro Bono Week is on domestic violence and the pro bono needs of victims.
