Lawyers Being Encouraged To Provide More Pro Bono Work In Indiana

The Indiana Pro Bono Commission has made a series of recommendations to the Supreme Court of Indianan that are designed to increase pro bono activity in the legal community.

The key proposal is to implement annual mandatory reporting of pro bono hours by every attorney licensed in Indiana.

 This is part of Chief Justice Brent Dickson’s long-term goal of creating a culture shift that will lead to more attorneys performing pro bono work.

Dickson sees the mandatory reporting of pro bono as a way to raise attorneys’ consciousness about their professional responsibility to help those less fortunate.

He does not advocate forcing lawyers to do pro bono but, instead, he wants to enable, encourage and facilitate it.
