To be considered for Attorneys for Justice, lawyers must report a minimum of 50 hours of pro bono service annually. The program is voluntary and based on self-reporting pro bono services provided during the previous calendar year when eligible attorneys renew their legal licenses with the Board of Professional Responsibility (BPR).
