Project Pro Bono


Launched in 2013, Project Pro Bono is a partnership between KCMBA and Legal Aid of Western Missouri with the purpose of encouraging law firms to help expand the availability of pro bono legal services in the Kansas City area. Law firms that sign the Pro Bono Pledge promise to make a commitment to the provision of pro bono legal services in the Kansas City area by actively seeking opportunities to provide pro bono services, setting specific goals for yearly pro bono work, and encouraging firm-wide participation in pro bono initiatives.

To publicize the efforts and achievements of lawyers performing pro bono work in our community, KCMBA highlights in the KC Counselor local lawyers who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to providing pro bono legal services.
