Power of Pro Bono

I’ve written lately on using the rules to increase access to legal services.  A few of my posts referenced compassion.

This post isn’t part of that series.  Rather, I’m simply sharing a story that I liked. A story that involve compassionate lawyers working pro bono not just to increase access, but to make their community a better place.

The story, by David Lash, is at Above the Law and is entitled A Remarkable Experiment Taking Place in Los Angeles.  Give it a read.  Here’s the closing sentence:

“And in the middle of this revolution of outreach are the lawyers, again demonstrating the unique and powerful way that only the justice system, particularly when fueled by collaborating experts from the most compassionate and expert legal aid organizations, can touch the lives of those most in need as can no one else.”
