    "......mandatory reporting of pro bono would likely increase pro bono work and donations".

    Suppose it doesn‘t. Suppose nobody does any pro bono? What business is it of the courts or the state through its licensing power to compel "voluntary" labor from any class of citizens. You want free legal work for the poor, raise taxes on the breadth of society as part of the traditional social contract that underpins taxation.
