Why Lawyers Give Back; A window into drivers and barriers of lawyers’ engagement in pro bono work

What can law firms do to encourage more attorneys to take up pro bono matters?
A survey of small and large law attorneys suggests that, even as firms adopt a more systematic approach to pro bono with an eye toward professional development, recruiting and other business drivers, it is worthwhile to explore more personal factors that might encourage attorneys to engage in pro bono work.

The survey, conducted by LexisNexis and Pro Bono Net, was fielded among more than 200 small and large law attorneys. It asked active pro bono attorneys what most influenced their participation, and lawyers who are not engaged in pro bono what prevented them from getting involved.
