Supreme Court of Virginia Amends Rules Regarding Pro Bono Reporting

On Friday, March 13, 2020, the Supreme Court of Virginia amended Part Six of the Rules of Court regarding voluntary pro bono publico reporting. Although the reporting will remain voluntary, the Court has extended the request for reporting of pro bono service to both active and associate members of the Virginia State Bar and authorized the Bar to collect this data as part of each lawyer’s annual dues renewal, should the lawyer opt to report. The new rules will take effect May 15, 2020.
