NY Pro Bono Requirement

Post by jediknight2424 » Tue Sep 15, 2015 11:16 am

Just took the NY bar exam. I'm starting at a big law firm soon and I still don't have the pro bono requirement completed. I'm pretty sure pro bono completed at a firm counts toward the requirement. How should I approach this? Should I seek out pro bono assignments at my firm in the next few months?

Yes, pro bono at your firm counts. Yes, you should probably seek out pro bono assignments since you won't be able to apply for admission to the bar until you've completed the requirement.
