This Essay attempts to place the debate over pro bono initiatives in legal education in broader perspective.
Although much has been written about the value of public service and the merits of requiring it, relatively little attention has focused on the factors that encourage support for either voluntary or mandatory programs. Even less effort has centered on evaluating the effectiveness of law school programs.
The effort here is to increase our understanding of what can build a culture of commitment to pro bono service.
To that end, discussion begins with the rationale for pro bono involvement by lawyers. Attention then turns to the characteristics and experiences that foster charitable work among Americans in general, and among lawyers and law students in particular.
Subsequent analysis centers on legal education’s efforts to encourage such work and the strategies most likely to increase their effectiveness.
