Every lawyer in Ontario takes an oath to ensure access to justice. Pro bono is a tangible way to fulfill this oath and ensure that people who would otherwise fall through the cracks can access to legal services. Pro Bono Ontario creates and manages programs that make it easy for lawyers – from new calls, to sole practitioners, to large firms and in-house counsel – to leverage their skills for the public good. PBO provides the client sourcing, access to experts, precedents and extended malpractice coverage so that lawyers can focus their energies exclusively on the provision of direct legal services. Lawyers know that without PBO’s assistance, meaningful pro bono opportunities would be harder to find and more expensive to undertake. They know that unless these programs are supported, their ability to help the public will suffer. Let’s listen to these lawyers.
