Most young attorneys understand and appreciate the value of doing pro bono legal work. For many, in a world where billable hours reign supreme, the issue is almost always one of diverting time away from fee-based matters and devoting the necessary amount of time to properly represent those in need. However, when making this calculation, many young attorneys fail to recognize the positive effects doing pro bono work can have on their own careers. If there is any question in your mind as to whether you should commit to a pro bono representation, the immediate tangible benefits you will almost certainly see to your own career growth and development should tip the scales firmly in favor of doing so.
