  • My Vault

Interested in starting your career at a large law firm, but want to size up its commitment to pro bono work? Want to read about the role of BigLaw in litigating landmark civil rights cases at the Supreme Court? Curious how many hours of pro bono you and your colleagues clock in annually? You can find all this information and more in the 2015 edition of Vault’s Guide to Law Firm Pro Bono Programs. The guide is based on the information collected in our 2014 Pro Bono Survey, in which administrators and pro bono counsel at over 120 law firms provided in-depth information about their companies’ pro bono programs. We have collected information about pro bono requirements, actual pro bono hours billed by attorneys and summer associates, and recent projects going on at the best and biggest law firms in the U.S. Click here to download the guide today!

Note: If your school has access to Vault, you can download the guide free of charge through your school’s Vault link.
