III. Rule 6.1, ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct

Rule 6.1 of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct establishes an aspirational professional responsibility for every lawyer to perform annually 50 hours of pro bono legal services for the poor.

"The poor" are not only those living below the federal poverty guidelines, but also the "working poor." The "working poor" are those families who have limited means and cannot reasonably afford the legal services they need. A good faith determination by the lawyer is sufficient. The legal services that count as pro bono legal services are direct free legal assistance to poor persons or to organizations whose overall mission and activities are designed predominately to address the needs of the poor.
