Report 2015 Pro Bono Hours
The OSB asks that all members report the hours of pro bono work done during 2015. Having data on pro bono hours allows the bar to be aware of and acknowledge the good work done by lawyers. It also provides details often asked for by the general public or the legislature.
Individuals and firms that report the highest number of pro bono hours are eligible for the 2015 ONLD Pro Bono Challenge Awards.
Visit www.osbar.org/probono/reporting.html to log in and report your hours online.
