Voluntary Pro Bono Reporting Period Coming to a Close

Only a few days remain for Ohio attorneys to report their 2010 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 Supreme Court the opportunity to voluntarily and anonymously report pro bono hours and financial contributions to legal aid programs.

Reporting is done electronically on a Web site that does not require entry of any identifying information. The Web site is accessed by using a link sent around Jan. 10 by email to all attorneys with an active Ohio registration. The sender was “The Supreme Court of Ohio.”

The reporting Web site consists of eight questions that take about 10 minutes to complete; firms may also report pro bono activities through a firm representative. The Web site will remain open until March 31. Attorneys may obtain a copy of the link by sending an email request to justiceinaction@olaf.org.
