Yes, It Is Important to Report Your Pro Bono Hours!


Is it really that important to report pro bono hours? Yes . . . if you want to support your local pro bono and legal services programs.

Each year, attorneys provide thousands of hours of pro bono work for those who cannot afford to pay for legal services — and each year thousands of hours go unreported. Some attorneys say it is self-aggrandizement to report. Others say only the office manager sees the reporting form.

Don’t do a disservice to your local pro bono and legal services programs by not reporting. When seeking funding, these organizations are frequently asked, “What are attorneys doing to help?” Help the Louisiana State Bar Association support your local public interest organizations by providing them information to respond to that question.
