Pro Bono Legal Services

Pro bono legal services include many types of legal services performed without or at a substantially reduced rate of compensation. Rule 6.1 of the Alaska Rules of Professional Conduct states that "[e]very lawyer has a professional responsibility to provide legal services to those unable to pay." Consistent with this rule, the attorney general urges attorneys to give back to the community by providing pro bono legal services. Although providing legal representation or advice to private individuals or entities is outside the scope of the duties of the Department of Law, the department strongly encourages pro bono legal work.
