No one project will solve the justice gap. But one significant way lawyers can be part of the solution is by fulfilling their ethical obligation to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono service yearly and by contributing meaningfully to legal aid organizations.
We don't know how many lawyers providing pro bono services or how many dollars are being donated to legal aid because in Colorado no one collects this data.
After researching the 10 states in the U.S. that do collect this data, the Colorado Access to Justice Commission recommends that - with the express endorsement of the organized bar - the Colorado Supreme Court's Judicial Advisory Council propose requiring attorneys to report these figures as part of their annual registration.
