Distinguished Pro Bono Fellows Committee

MANDATE: The Distinguished Pro Bono Fellows Committee significantly advances in many ways a fundamental core mission of the College; namely, to ensure meaningful access to justice for all citizens throughout the United States and Canada. The Committee also identifies and recommends to the Board of Regents for approval as Distinguished Pro Bono Fellows those Fellows in the College, who are providing at least 250 hours of pro bono access to justice related service on an annual basis through their partnerships with nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public service entities. 

Committee discussions will now take place on ACTL Connected. Follow this link to sign in and start a discussion with your committee.
