Hesitant To Take On a Pro Bono UAC Case?

Pro Bono

"To what greater object, to what greater character, can we aspire as lawyers than to assist the helpless and friendless in a worthy cause? I say there is none. To devote your skill and energy to the plight of another, without the promise of a material reward for oneself, is what sets us apart as professionals."

John Adams, 1761

Devoting time and professional skill to public service is a hallmark of the legal profession. AILA offers resources to assist members to locate opportunities as well as incorporate such service into their practices.
