On average, 66 percent of lawyers across the country perform 39 hours of free legal service a year, according to a new study from the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service. The study surveyed lawyers from every state, practice area, and age group nationwide about pro bono work. “We went into this with no preconceived notions, and I think we were pleasantly surprised at how much work is being done,” says Debbie Segal, the pro bono partner at Kilpatrick Stockton and chair of the ABA committee. The survey found that attorneys in private practice spent significantly more time performing pro bono work than corporate and government attorneys, while family- and business-law matters received the most attention.
