About the ISBA

ISBA Pro Bono Partner

Members of the Illinois State Bar Association are committed to delivering legal services to those who need to turn to the courts to solve their problems, whether the people who need legal services are able to pay for the services or are unable to do so.

The Illinois State Bar Association, the Illinois Bar Foundation, and the lawyers who are members recognize that the need for legal services for the one-third of the State that is below the federal poverty level cannot be met by legal service agencies alone.

The Illinois Supreme Court Rules underscore the importance of Pro Bono legal services for persons of limited means whose household income is below the poverty level and also those people referred to as the “working poor”.

As a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, I am a supporter of the free legal services, training, and grants that ISBA and IBF provide to assist people in need, and I support ISBA and my local bar association and legal service provider.

I declare myself to be an ISBA Pro Bono Partner, and I promise to:

  1. Seek out the local pro bono legal services being supplied to individuals or charitable, religious or civic organizations in my community;
  2. Attend or support a recognition ceremony for those who participate in pro bono services in my community;
  3. Consider attending training provided to lawyers who provide pro bono services;
  4. Commit to joining the efforts to increase access to our legal system.
