RPC Pro Bono Publico
Under RPC 6.1, every lawyer has a professional responsibility to assist in the provision of legal services to those unable to pay. This professional responsibility of service is also stated in the Oath of Attorney: “I will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed, or delay unjustly the cause of any person.”
WSBA is committed to making it easier and more rewarding to get involved in giving back. Take a look at the list below of ways you can fulfill your professional responsibility.
