Pro Bono Net is a national non-profit organization dedicated to increasing access to justice for the disadvantaged. Our website for lawyers, www.probono.net , promotes collaboration and makes it easier for pro bono attorneys to get involved, saving time and connecting them with opportunities, training events, mentors, and searchable libraries of practice resources. Pro Bono Net's consumer site, www.lawhelp.org , is an online resource that helps low and moderate-income people find free legal help, information and self-help tools.
and Pro Bono Net (www.probono.net) conducted a survey of more than 200 attorneys on why they do - or don't do - pro bono work. The findings, discussed here, show that those
undertaking pro bono work are motivated by personal fulfillment goals and a dedication
to issues important to them and their communities. Lawyers not volunteering
their services often are interested in pro bono work, yet constrained by time
and billing expectations.
