October 2015-- With more Ohioans relying on legal aid services to find justice in the judicial system, the need for more pro bono attorneys continues to grow. National Pro Bono Week gives legal aid societies and other legal organizations an opportunity to thank these attorneys for all of their contributions and recruit more lawyers to the service of helping others.
Northeast Ohioans are celebrating this week with activities, including several pro bono-related continuing legal education classes to help train attorneys, clinics for Ohioans to get free legal advice, and a fundraiser to help legal aid services.
The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland uses this week to highlight pro bono opportunities nearby and to say thank you to its volunteers.
