Did you know Nevada is a mandatory reporting state for pro bono?
Attoneys must annually report whether they provided pro bono public services (or contributed funds) as defined by RPC 6.1. The Rule does not make pro bono itself or financial contributions mandatory, only the reporting thereof. However, the Rule strongly advocates these activities as aspirational goals of all attorneys and the Nevada Supreme Court Access to Justice Commission challenges all Nevada’s lawyers to show those less fortunate we care by donating of your time and resources. Your skills and resources can and will change lives.
Don’t forget the Rule also includes activities beyond taking a case or giving money, for example law-related education; activities for improving the law and the legal profession; or presenting for an approved education program sponsored by the state or a county bar or a Nevada court.
