Now more than ever, pro bono is more than just the right thing to do.
For the sixth year, the State Bar of Michigan has designated October as Pro Bono Month, joining the American Bar Association and many other states in selecting October as a time to highlight the need for and importance of pro bono civil legal assistance to low-income people. All across the country, lawyers will be taking part in events to educate the public and the legal profession about pro bono legal services.
If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Robert Mathis, SBM's Pro Bono Service Counsel, at (517)346-6412 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
