Community Involvement


Lawyer Legion - recognized for Community Involvement

At Lawyer Legion, we recognize attorneys for their involvement in the legal community. In the legal profession, community involvement takes many forms including:

  • earning the designation as board certified specialist in a state or national program;
  • becoming a member or leader of a non-profit specialty bar association;
  • completing at least 20 extra hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) training at live and in-person seminars; and
  • performing at least 50 hours annually in pro bono legal services for the indigent, disadvantaged, or underrepresented.

Non-profit legal organizations and specialty certification programs depend on attorneys being willing to step out of their practice and volunteer their time to give back to the community.

The time lawyers spent volunteering in legal organizations ultimately helps attorneys take advantage of educational opportunities, sharpen their leadership skills, and mentor younger attorneys. In exchange, non-profit legal organizations serve attorneys by providing support, offering continuing legal education, and facilitating networking opportunities.

For the public, specialty bar associations and certification programs provide an important way to confirm an attorney's claim to focus on a niche practice area.

List your membership in non-profit legal organizations, as well as other types of civic, charitable, and philanthropic organizations. If your employees volunteer their time to help the community, then showcase that information on your website.

Your law firm's commitment to volunteering time and making financial contributions to non-profit organizations might encourage others to get more involved. At Lawyer Legion, we highlight several examples of attorneys focused on community involvement.
