Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: September 28, 2021 02:22 PM
From: Senator Art Haywood
To: All Senate members
Subject: Pro Bono Week
Please join me in co-sponsoring a resolution recognizing the week of 24 October - 30 October 2021 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.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation. 

Introduced as SR193
