Legal Aid volunteers fill the ranks of first Pro Bono Honor Society

RALEIGH, June 5, 2017 – Legal Aid of North Carolina congratulates its 54 volunteers who were inducted into the inaugural class of the Supreme Court of North Carolina’s Pro Bono Honor Society.

The 170 members of the society each donated at least 50 hours of pro bono service in 2016, fulfilling their professional responsibility to provide public service as laid out in Rule 6.1 of the North Carolina State Bar’s Rules of Professional Conduct.

Of the 170 inaugural members, 54 provided pro bono services to Legal Aid last year, significantly improving our ability to provide justice for our clients (see list below).

North Carolina attorneys interested in joining our pro bono team or supporting our work can visit the Pro Bono section of our website. Attorneys interested in pro bono can also visit the NC Pro Bono Resource Center at to learn more about pro bono service and find volunteer opportunities.
