Missouri Bar Asks Lawyers to Report Pro Bono Hours Annually
Help Track Our Legal Profession’s Commitment to Justice to All




Many Missouri lawyers generously help ensure that justice extends to those less fortunate by making pro bono work an integral part of their practices. However, this honorable commitment often lacks the recognition it deserves within the legal profession and is for the most part unknown to the general public.


The Missouri Bar hopes to change this by asking lawyers to voluntarily report the number of hours they commit to pro bono work annually. This reporting will provide valuable information about the collective and individual pro bono efforts of Missouri lawyers, help the Bar better recognize these efforts and inspire other lawyers to perform pro bono services. You will play a vital role in this effort by annually reporting your pro bono hours using this site. We have made it quick and easy to do. Just log in with your members-only bar number and pin and complete the brief form.


Lawyers to Be Added to Missouri Bar Pro Bono “Wall of Fame”
All lawyers who do their part to support access to justice through pro bono service deserve to be commended. However, attorneys who perform 40 or more hours of pro bono work in a year merit special recognition. And they will get it. Lawyers who reach this milestone will be honored on the Missouri Bar Pro Bono “Wall of Fame,” a prominent feature of the Missouri Bar Pro Bono website.
