Cooperation is key among the many recommendations of a special task force to best increase pro bono involvement by all lawyers to help meet the nation’s civil legal services needs.

“This is not something that any one segment of the legal profession can do alone,” said James J. Sandman, president of the Washington, D.C.-based Legal Services Corporation which commissioned a Pro Bono Task Force in August 2011 to come up with recommendations.
