EXCEPTIONAL PRO BONO SERVICE AWARD

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on February 9, 2013

EXCEPTIONAL PRO BONO SERVICE AWARD

Sponsored by the Paralegal DivisionAchievement

The Paralegal Division (PD) of the State Bar of Texas is proud to sponsor an Exceptional Pro Bono Service Award. Its purpose is to promote the awareness of pro bono activities and to encourage PD members to volunteer their time and specialty skills to pro bono projects within their community by recognizing a PD member who demonstrates exceptional dedication to pro bono service. Paralegals are invited to foster the development of pro bono projects, to provide assistance to established pro bono programs, and work closely with attorneys to provide unmet legal services to people with low incomes.

This annual award will go to an individual PD member who performed the pro bono service(s) in the State of Texas and has volunteered his or her time and special skills in providing uncompensated services in pro bono assistance to their community. The winner of the award will be announced at the 2013 Annual Meeting to be held in Dallas, TX on Friday, June 21, 2013, his/her expenses to attend the Annual Meeting will be incurred by the Division, and a profile of the individual will be published in the Fall 2013 issue of the Texas Paralegal Journal.
