A new study, "Supporting Justice: A Report on the Pro Bono Work of America's Lawyers," represents the fourth of a series — and first since 2013. The survey reached out to more than 50,000 attorneys in 24 states, seeking data in such areas as their interest, time spent, and key influencing factors related to pro bono work to determine how the culture of volunteering manifests itself in the legal profession. This program will explore the results of that survey, including motivations and challenges involved in providing pro bono legal services. Panelists will also discuss rules of professional conduct and pro bono models that address some of the challenges raised by respondents.
