ABA Pro Bono Week: October 23rd to 29th

At VLJ, we celebrate pro bono work every day, but in honor of the American Bar Association's Pro Bono Week (October 23rd to 29th), we have planned a wide variety of events for attorneys and clients. The goals of the celebration include: recruiting more pro bono volunteers and increasing legal services to poor and vulnerable people, mobilizing community support for pro bono, fostering collaborative relationships, and recognizing the pro bono efforts of America's lawyers.
