BE A PART OF THE PRO BONO CHALLENGE!

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on January 23, 2014

Help the Paralegal Division win this challenge!

The State Bar of Texas – Legal Access Division is excited to issue a “Pro Bono Challenge” toHelping Hands the Sections and Divisions of the State Bar.   The purpose of the Challenge is to recognize the Sections and Divisions for their pro bono participation and add to the competitive spirit amongst Sections.  The Challenge was recently announced and launched through State Bar media and will run through the end of the bar year (May 31, 2014).

To “log” pro bono hours, attorneys & paralegals simply log in to their My Bar Page, and click on the Add Pro Bono Hours page to add their pro bono hours. Members can assign their pro bono hours to a Section/Division or combination of Sections by making multiple entries through the “add hours” tab.  (Members may only count their pro bono hours once.)  Winners of the Pro Bono Challenge will be selected in two categories: (1) the highest number of hours reported by a Section/Division; and (2) the highest percentage of Section/Division members reporting pro bono hours.  Winners will be recognized at a special reception at the State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting, in the Texas Bar Journal, and in other media.  If you have any questions please contact the Legal Access Division at  800.204.222 ex 1837.
