About the Pro Bono Honor Roll

Pro Bono Logo-Do the Public Good, Volunteer for Pro Bono

The Pro Bono Honor Roll, administered by the Supreme Judicial Court Standing Committee on Pro Bono Legal Services, honors each year those law firms, solo practitioners, in-house corporate counsel offices, government attorney offices, non-profit organizations, and law school faculties which certify that, in the relevant time period, they have met the criteria linked to below. This program is entirely voluntary.

The law firms, solo practitioners, in-house corporate counsel offices, government attorney offices, non-profit organizations, and law schools, which so certify shall receive a letter of acknowledgement and appreciation for their commitment to pro bono legal work, shall be listed on the SJC website on the Pro Bono Honor Roll.  

Please note that this year, law students have a separate process to be recognized for their pro bono commitment. Information about the Pro Bono Honor Roll certification process for law students is now available.
