Voluntary Pro Bono Reporting Will Close March 31
Only a few days remain to for attorneys to report 2011 pro bono hours and financial contributions to legal aid programs.
The Supreme Court of Ohio, in conjunction with the Ohio Legal Assistance Foundation, offers all attorneys with an active Ohio registration and an email address on file with the Court the opportunity to voluntarily and anonymously report pro bono hours and financial contributions to legal aid programs.
Reporting is done electronically on a website that does not require entry of any identifying information. The website is accessed by using a link sent around January 10 by email to all attorneys with an email address on file with the court. The sender was “The Supreme Court of Ohio.”
The reporting website consists of 8 questions for an individual attorney and will take about ten minutes to complete; firms may also report pro bono activities through a firm representative. The website will remain open until midnight on March 31. Attorneys may obtain a copy of the link by sending an email request to email@example.com.
