The Pro Bono Resource Center is proud to participate every October in the National Pro Bono Celebration. Initiated by the ABA’s Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service, the Celebration highlights the increasing need for pro bono services nationally and honors the work of lawyers who donate their services throughout the year.
As part of our mission to ensure equal access to legal services, PBRC coordinates the Maryland calendar of Celebration events. Each fall, PBRC circulates an Event Sheet (available below) so that providers can submit events to the statewide calendar. Once complete, PBRC widely publicizes the calendar throughout the state. The calendar is a great way to highlight recurring events such as clinics and workshops as well as events created specifically for the Celebration including trainings, client service events, and recognition events for outstanding volunteers.
