The next episode of the Mo Show Live will air Wednesday, October 2nd at 10:00 AM central time and will feature Alabama State Bar President Christy Crow. Morris and Christy will be discussing what Pro Bono month is about, the volunteer lawyer program that operates throughout the state, and other volunteer programs such as Wills for Heroes.
The statewide pro bono celebration is scheduled for the month of October each year. The celebration is a coordinated statewide effort to showcase the great difference that pro bono lawyers make to the state, its system of justice, its communities and most of all to the clients they service. The month is also dedicated to the quest for more pro bono volunteers to meet the ever-growing legal needs of this country’s most vulnerable citizens. In 2018, more than 422,000 households experienced more than 733,000 legal issues with low-income households only having had legal assistance for approximately 16 percent of these legal problems.
The Alabama Bar Association is the official governing body of lawyers in Alabama. The Bar was created by the Alabama Legislature in 1923 and has continuously served lawyers and the public since that time. However, the Bar traces its roots to 1878 when the Bar formed on a voluntary basis. Currently, there are 11,873 in-state regular members and 1,858 out-of-state regular members. The Bar also counts special members and new admittees for a total membership of 18,200.
