Tonight we will celebrate Pro Bono Week at the Annual Judicial, Government, and Public Interest Reception, featuring Pitt Law Dean William M. Carter JR, and Duquesne Law Dean Ken Gormley. The event will take place on Duquesne University’s Campus at the Power Center Ballroom from 5 to 7 p.m. We are excited for all those who are attending and expect those to enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres with colleagues while networking and celebrating the bench and the public interest bar. We will be sharing with students interested in careers in the judiciary, government, and public interest law about clerkships, externships, pro bono initiatives and other opportunities in our region.
As Pro Bono Week continues, we reflect on quote from the Preamble to the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct: “All lawyers should devote professional time and resources and use civic influence to ensure equal access to our system of justice for all those who because of economic or social barriers cannot afford or secure adequate legal counsel.”
It’s day two of Pro Bono Week! Here is a relevant quote from Eleanor Roosevelt... “Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both.” Never is equal access to justice more important than when one side can afford an attorney, but the other cannot.
National Pro Bono Week is here! Let’s kick off the celebration with a quote from The Hon. Lewis F. Powell, Jr., former U.S. Supreme Court Justice. He said these words in Aug. 1976 during his tenure as president of the American Bar Association. “Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court building; it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system exists . . . it is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status.”
