As pro bono champions in Government, the Attorney General and I attended events during Justice Week to encourage and support the excellent work being done by the pro bono community. We also chair the Pro Bono Committee that helps to promote and coordinate the work already being done by pro bono lawyers.

From personal experience I know that pro bono work not only brings a sense of responsibility but also a tremendous sense of achievement and pride in what can be accomplished. Over the last year I have been immensely proud what has been achieved through the dedication of the all those involved in pro bono work and I am consistently struck by the commitment shown.
