In order to meet skyrocketing demand for free and timely legal advice service throughout British Columbia, Access Pro Bono is actively seeking lawyers in all parts of the province and of all practice areas to provide legal advice from their office to remote clients by Skype or telephone.
As of May 1, 2013, New York lawyers are required to report every second year on the number of pro bono service hours provided to poor and underserved clients, and the amount of voluntary financial contributions made to organizations serving primarily poor and underserved clients.
The new reporting requirement takes effect concurrently with an amendment to the applicable Rules of Professional Conduct that strongly encourages New York lawyers to aspire to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono service each year.
Following several years of research and interviews with 259 self-represented litigants (SRLs) and 107 service providers in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, Dr. Julie Macfarlane of the University of Windsor Faculty of Law has issued a landmark report entitled, “The National Self-Represented Litigants Project: Identifying and Meeting the Needs of Self-Represented Litigants”.
