What is pro bono?

Connecticut’s Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys (Rule 6.1) defines Pro Bono Publico legal services as:

“… professional services at no fee or a reduced fee to persons of limited means or to public service or charitable groups or organizations, by service in activities for improving the law, the legal system or the legal profession, and by financial support for organizations that provide legal services to persons of limited means."



Pro Bono Services


The CBA does not offer legal advice, assistance, or materials. However, we encourage members of the public to consult the list of participating agencies and contact them directly if pro bono legal services are needed.
