  • At its October 21 meeting, the Metropolitan King County Council proclaimed the week of October 20 – 26 as “Celebration of Pro Bono Week” in honor of those who volunteer their time pro bono to provide legal services to individuals and families in need.

    “Pro bono is of fundamental importance to the legal profession for so many reasons,” said Dean Kellye Testy, with the University of Washington’s School of Law. “Not only does it make an enormous difference in enhancing access to justice for persons, organizations, and causes that might otherwise go unrepresented, it also enhances the legitimacy of the rule of law in society. Pro bono is a privilege and means that every lawyer can be a public interest lawyer, no matter what field their primary work may be in.” (10/25/13)
