About North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society
North Carolina Rule of Professional Conduct 6.1 encourages North Carolina attorneys to provide at least fifty hours of pro bono legal services each year to those unable to pay. Attorneys licensed in North Carolina (or attorneys who provide services under North Carolina Pro Bono Practice Status) who report at least 50 hours of pro bono legal service (i.e., activity under NC RPC 6.1(a)) in a year will be inducted into that year’s cohort of the North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society and receive a certificate from the Supreme Court of North Carolina recognizing their valuable contributions to the people of North Carolina.
The North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society celebrates those attorneys who have met their professional responsibility enshrined in Rule 6.1, increasing access to justice for those in need. The Society allows the North Carolina legal profession to celebrate the importance of attorney volunteerism and encourage colleagues and peers to get involved.
