The 2014 edition of the Vault Guide to Law Firm Pro Bono Programs is now available! The guide features detailed information about the pro bono work that 124 top law firms across the country have engaged in over the past few years.
Law firms continue to be major providers of pro bono legal services in the current economic client, where the need for representation is high but resources are limited. Whether they are briefing landmark Supreme Court cases or appearing in local courts on behalf of their clients, associates at firms around the country are making meaningful contributions and gaining valuable experience through pro bono work.
Vault’s pro bono survey collects information regarding various aspects of law firm pro bono programs, such as the professionals who manage the program internally, average number of pro bono hours per attorney, pro bono opportunities for summer associates, and recent pro bono victories and partnerships. We also ask about how pro bono work factors into evaluations, promotions, and compensation decisions.
