The CBA and the CBF launched our annual Pro Bono Week with the twin goals of honoring lawyers' pro bono efforts and educating the public and the legal community about how these lawyers are improving the lives of the less fortunate. In 2013, Chicago will be joined by communities across the country for the fifth time in the American Bar Association's National Pro Bono Celebration.
