Pro Bono Week Kickoff Reception

Each year during October, Arkansas lawyers and judges come together to honor the work of pro bono attorneys and to host pro bono events across the state. Attorneys who take the time to do pro bono are critical to ensuring that all Arkansans are able to access justice. Pro bono plays an important role in protecting survivors of domestic violence, defending the rights of seniors who have fallen victim to fraud, and ensuring that children have access to a safe home.

This year, for the first time, Access to Justice will be hosting a Pro Bono Week Kickoff Reception at Diamond Bear Brewing in North Little Rock. We will be honoring seven attorneys for their commitment to pro bono service. This year’s honorees are:

What: This reception will be a casual event to kick off Pro Bono Week, so come as you are. You can even get a jump start on Just Jeans (Pro Bono Week’s casual Friday event) by coming in jeans.

Where: Diamond Bear Brewing Co., located at 600 North Broadway Street North Little Rock, Arkansas.

When: October 23rd from 5:30 to 7:30.

Why: To thank our honorees. Plus, proceeds from this event will benefit Arkansas’s civil legal aid providers, the Center for Arkansas Legal Services and Legal Aid of Arkansas. These organizations are the state’s largest pro bono referral entities.
