Iowa Supreme Court Promotes Pro Bono Legal Services

Monday, October 19, 2009

The Iowa Supreme Court issued a resolution today urging all lawyers to devote at least 50 hours of pro bono legal services each year. Lawyers who provide pro bono legal service donate their time and expertise to assist individuals who cannot afford legal counsel.

The court also encourages judges to encourage pro bono service by lawyers. The court's resolution coincides with and recognizes the American Bar Association's first National Pro Bono Week Celebration October 25-31.

Details are available in their press release.
