Happy Pro Bono Week! Today is the last official day of the celebration and we've been very busy with 11 programs and events across the state. We've been doing it all - from celebrations, to CLE programs, to providing legal help to those in need. You can learn more about Pro Bono Week and view a full list of all our events on our website. Also be sure to check out our Facebook page to see pictures from all our different events this week.
