2019 Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll Enrollment Opens

January 31, 2020

Did you devote 50 hours or more to pro bono service in 2019? If so, register your name for the District of Columbia Courts’ Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll by Monday, March 2, 2020.

Recognizing the vital role that private and government attorneys play in providing pro bono services to those who cannot afford counsel, the Chief Judges of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and the Superior Court of the District of Columbia are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the annual Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll.

Supported by the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center and the D.C. Access to Justice Commission, the Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll pays tribute to the thousands of D.C. Bar members and attorneys practicing under D.C. Court of Appeals Rule 49 who provide desperately needed free legal services to those living in poverty and/or to the disadvantaged small businesses and community-based non-profits that are critical to the economic well-being of our community.

To register for the Honor Roll, attorneys must submit a declaration indicating that they provided 50 hours or more of pro bono work—or 100 hours or more for the High Honor Roll—in 2019. Attorneys may submit applications online at www.CapitalProBono.net.

Bulk applications may be submitted by office administrators.

Participating attorneys will be recognized on the Courts’ website.

Submissions are due by Monday, March 2, 2020.
