Happy Pro Bono Week!
As Michael Bergmann pointed out in his recent ISBA Special Message video
, pro bono is a way to ensure our justice system is equitable and accessible for all.
"Pro bono is important because only we as lawyers have the training, the skills and the knowhow to effectively navigate the legal system," he said. " Pro bono is the way to really change a life, sometimes even save a life."
While taking our events virtual is difficult, we are excited to share this week of celebration with all of you across the state. From DuPage to Decatur, from Mattoon to Madison, from Champaign to Chicago, attorneys have stepped up to provide pro bono services to those in need. And we're excited to share their stories with you.
Stay healthy and well!
