Survey of Emeritus and Pro Bono Practice Programs: Assessing Participation

The Commission has been tracking the development of emeritus (pro bono) practice rules for nearly a decade, focus was on the details of the rules, not on the impact the rules were having on the number of attorney volunteers and the number of hours volunteered. The Commission has fielded requests for the number of attorneys licensed under these rules and the number of hours of service provided. Until now, a resource to begin to answer these questions did not exist.
