NY - 50 Hours of Pro Bono Requirement

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Mar 13, 2015 6:39 pm

So I have a little more than 30 left to go (had a lot of non-legal charitable work in the past.)

I am trying to decipher if I need to get up to 50 by April 1-15 or just before I'm admitted (which I think is after the exam) on the c&f application - like you can do them from June-September too?


I have been treating it like billable time in that an hour's not an hour. My time reading and applying law is an hour. is there a standard approach of how to count pro bono hours?

I'm only a 3L, but my impression is that the 50 hour pro bono affidavit is submitted with the rest of your C&F materials in November (or whenever you pass the bar and ultimately want to submit your materials). So I imagine it will be fine if you do them over the summer.

I need 35 more or so and plan to do them when I show up to work in the fall somehow.
