The Association of Pro Bono Counsel (APBCo) is a membership organization of over 135 partners, counsel and practice group managers who run pro bono practices on primarily a full-time basis in over 85 of the country's largest law firms.
APBCo's mission is to maximize access to justice through the delivery of pro bono legal services by:
- Advancing the model of the full-time law firm pro bono counsel
- Supporting and enhancing the professional development of pro bono counsel
- Serving as the voice of the law firm pro bono community
Attorneys who currently manage a law firm pro bono practice on a full-time basis are eligible to become APBCo members. Non-attorneys who currently manage a law firm pro bono practice on a full-time basis or who currently provide programmatic (not administrative) support to an APBCo member on a full-time basis and are sponsored by the APBCo member; and attorneys who currently spend 50% or more of their time managing a law firm pro bono practice are also eligible to become APBCo members but such applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis by APBCo's board of directors or its designee.
