The Pro Bono Award of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation is given annually to a Philadelphia law firm or corporate legal department that performs outstanding volunteer efforts in providing legal services to those in need. The award recipient demonstrates commitment to the development and delivery of pro bono legal services in the region and contributes significantly to innovative approaches to the delivery of volunteer legal services.
The Pro Bono Award brings important recognition to the amazing pro bono work being done in our community, work that is at the core of the legal profession. This important and prestigious honor is a proud part of the legal community’s commitment to promoting access to justice, as embodied by the mission of the Foundation and its work in support of legal assistance.
2017 marks the fourteenth anniversary of the Pro Bono Award. The award is officially presented at the annual Access to Justice Benefit of the Bar Foundation in November.
