Gov. John Bel Edwards Declares Oct. 22-27 as “Pro Bono Week”

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards recently signed a proclamation recognizing the special week.

The LSBA’s Access to Justice Program, in collaboration with local pro bono projects, businesses, government agencies and community organizations, will be celebrating "Pro Bono Week" and the “Lawyers in Libraries” program to highlight the work of Louisiana's pro bono community and the difference it makes to the state, the system of justice, communities and to the clients served. During Pro Bono Week, LSBA members will volunteer to provide free, limited services to the public at local libraries statewide through "Ask-a-Lawyer" consultations and classroom style presentations.
