Gov. John Hickenlooper declared Oct 20 - 26 to be Pro Bono Week in Colorado, noting how far too many people are unable to fill their basic needs due, in part, to a lack of legal representation. He mentioned statistics from Colorado Legal Services, demonstrating the need for pro bono, and commended the state supreme court's pro bono recognition program and Colorado's voluntary pro bono rule.
