2016 Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll
As part of the 2011 National Celebration of Pro Bono, the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center and the D.C. Access to Justice Commission helped the D.C. Courts to establish the Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll, which annually recognized the pro bono contributions made by members of the D.C. Bar and others authorized to perform pro bono work in the District of Columbia. The Honor Roll, which is jointly sponsored by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, recognizes attorneys who provide 50 or more hours of pro bono services (or 100 or more hours of service for a higher recognition category) per year. To be included in the Honor Roll, D.C. Bar members and others who are authorized to perform pro bono work in the District of Columbia should submit the online application form, which includes a declaration that they have provided the requisite number of hours of pro bono work in the calendar year. The deadline to register pro bono hours performed during the 2016 calendar year has been extended to March 1, 2017. Participating attorneys are recognized on the Courts' website and elsewhere.
Some law firms or corporations submit information to the Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll on behalf of their attorneys. Please check with your pro bono counsel or pro bono coordinator to determine whether your firm is making a direct submission on your behalf. If are a pro bono coordinator and would like to submit bulk data, download this test data file, fill in the correct data, and email the data to Reece Flexner at the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center.
