The last week in October has been proclaimed Pennsylvania Pro Bono Week by Governor Tom Corbett and the General Assembly. Pennsylvania Pro Bono Week is an opportunity to highlight the difference lawyers make in their communities, to recruit and train more pro bono volunteers and to acknowledge the partnerships that form the basis for many of the private bar's successful pro bono efforts. Pennsylvania has been a national leader in the now four year old American Bar Association National Pro Bono Week celebration, with events at many sites across the commonwealth.
