Ten years ago, the American Bar Association started the national celebration of pro bono. The celebration, set for one week in October, highlights all pro bono-oriented events during that week in the United States. This year’s celebration is October 21-27, 2018.
The Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland (PBRC) has historically extended the celebration to showcase events in our state throughout the entire month of October. The events include free legal clinics for low-income Marylanders, trainings and workshops for attorneys, and celebratory events for law firms, nonprofits, and volunteer attorneys – as well as any other event celebrating pro bono in the state.
All pro bono organizations in the state of Maryland are welcomed to submit events to PBRC to be included on the pro bono month calendar, online at probonomd.org/celebration.
