Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: October 1, 2019 10:53 AM
From: Senator Art Haywood
To: All Senate members
Subject: Pro Bono Week in PA
Please join me in co-sponsoring a resolution designating the week of October 25, 2019 through October 31, 2019 as “Pro Bono Week” in Pennsylvania.

Pro bono, short for “pro bono publico”, is a Latin term meaning “for the public good.”

In Pennsylvania, attorneys throughout the state provide voluntary legal assistance to individuals and families in all areas of law, enhancing access to justice for all.

The Pennsylvania Bar Association is joining with the American Bar Association to sponsor this October’s annual National Pro Bono Week celebration.

This is an opportunity for all of us to recognize the difference that lawyers make in their communities in recruiting and training more pro bono volunteers and the good work they do for our Commonwealth’s neediest citizens.

Thank you for considering co-sponsoring this resolution.

Introduced as SR245
