"Note to applicants applying for admission on examination: do not submit an employment affidavit for employments listed on your 50 hour pro bono compliance affidavit or listed on your pro bono scholars program completion affidavit (see instructions accompanying question 15 on the application for admission questionnaire)."
I'm confused by this quote in the employer affidavit form...
For example, I can read it one of two ways:
First, it could mean that you do not necessarily
need employer affidavits for every last organizational hour that is counting towards the pro bono requirements. For example, even if you did, say, 1 hour of legal aid volunteer work that you did extracurricularly and are submitting a pro bono affidavit for, it does not necessarily count as "legal employment" and does not also require an employer affidavit.
Alternatively, it could mean that any employer that you have listed as a pro bono reference no longer requires any additional employment affidavit. For example, if you did a 1L SA and also did pro bono work with them that you are using for a pro bono affidavit (or your 1L summer was spent entirely at an organization that is signing your pro bono affidavit for your qualifying work), then you absolutely do not also need an employer affidavit from that organization.
The plain reading tends to favor the latter, but that just seems to simplify things a surprising amount...
