MORE ON MANDATORY PRO BONO
August 31, 2010 § 1 Comment
Philip W. Thomas of Jackson publishes the Mississippi Litigation Review & Commentary blog, and you can find a link to it on the right of this page. If you don’t view it regularly, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
Thomas turned his attention yesterday to the proposed rule change to the Rule 6.1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct that would make pro bono mandatory in our state. His post, Mandatory Pro Bono Coming to Mississippi? is linked for you to read.
I already commented on the proposed rule here, and my views are contrary to Mr. Thomas’s. There is a comment to my post taking issue with my position, and you should read it.
My suggestion is that you study the proposed rule, read over these posts and any other material on the subject that you can find, and submit your comment to the Supreme Court. Whatever your position, this will affect you and your practice, and you need to make your voice heard. You can read a copy of the proposed rule here.
