Lawyers have unique skills that make a real difference in the lives of Ohioans. The Ohio Access to Justice Foundation’s New Admittee Pro Bono Challenge puts those skills to the test.

The Challenge – a new initiative from the Foundation to bolster interest in pro bono service – encourages fall 2021 admittees to the Ohio Bar to complete as many pro bono hours as possible at participating organizations now through May 16, 2022. The new lawyer who completes the most pro bono hours can choose an Ohio legal services organization to receive a $5,000 grant from the Foundation.

By participating in the Challenge, new lawyers give their time and amplify their impact with a generous financial gift.
