2013 Pro Bono Pitch


October is when the pro bono heavy hitters come out. Public Counsel is celebrating National Pro Bono Week, October 21-26, by throwing our first Pro Bono Pitch.

The Pro Bono Pitch encourages attorneys to help someone in need of justice this year.

If you take on a pro bono matter or participate in a legal clinic by December 15, 2013, we will add your name to our championship roster. Public Counsel will have special Pro Bono Pitch events. And we will be blogging about the issues facing pro bono attorneys. Click here to view the roster.


Every attorney who signs up for a matter or clinic by December 15, 2013, will be in the running to win 2014 Dodgers tickets.

Questions? Contact Sandra Madera at smadera[at]publiccounsel.org.
