VOLS Hours Exceed Goals
The firms that take the Volunteers of Legal Service Pro Bono Pledge exceeded 1 million hours of pro bono service for the fourth year in a row, according to the results of our recently completed survey. These 43 law firms reported performing a total of 1,005,201 pro bono hours in New York City during 2011. Lawyers at these firms performed an average of 79 hours of pro bono service each. These numbers would be impressive in a booming economy. They are especially impressive in our uncertain economic times.
