Pro Bono Resources: Providing Justice for All
Pro Bono Attorneys and Legal Services Programs provide access to justice for Louisiana's citizens. The Access to Justice program supports and encourages efforts of dedicated attorneys who do pro bono work. Further, we encourage all Louisiana attorneys to fulfill their professional obligations established by Rule 6.1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct, which set an aspirational goal of 50 hours of pro bono legal services per attorney per year.
