While most people set resolutions in January, there is no better time than August to readjust your yearly goals. That is especially the case for pro bono. Our state bar "urges" us to devote fifty hours a year to pro bono work,2 and many lawyers do that and more. Others have every intention of giving back to their communities through pro bono, but the challenges to doing so get in the way.
