During the commission’s recent first 2018 meeting, Hamrin said her committee is studying pro bono programs being used across the country — particularly ones that allow inactive, retired or attorneys licensed in a different state to perform pro bono work.
She said 39 states currently have a pro bono program like this in place. In nearly all of those states, a participating attorney must perform the pro bono work through a certified legal services program.
