York County Bar Association
Activity-Pro Bono Program
Pro Bono Program
We are quite proud of the fact that over 60% of all of the members of the York County Bar Association participate in the York County Bar Foundation's Pro Bono Program. This can be done by either signing up to take cases or participating in a panel if you have a specialized area of practice, or by paying the $250 annual Opt Out fee. The money raised through the Opt Out fee is sent directly to Mid Penn Legal Services for the operation of their York office in covering staff salaries and operating expenses.

All members are encouraged to sign up either to take a case or to pay the Opt Out fee. Members are also encouraged to sign up for the 100% Plan whereby you agree to take a case if one is assigned to you, but if it is not assigned then to pay the Opt Out fee by the end of the year.

Please complete the following sign up form and submit it. To whom much is given, much is expected.

Very truly yours,
The Pro Bono Committee
