Pro Bono Report 2005

July 2006


Volume 1, Issue 2, 2006

Jones Day demonstrates our deep commitment to the needs of the public and particularly the disadvantaged in our society through a wide array of pro bono cases and public service activities. To highlight some of our work over the past year, Jones Day is publishing the second annual Pro Bono Report.

The success of the Firm’s pro bono practice can be seen in the numerous awards Jones Day has received in the last year; for example, the Atlanta Office was recognized for a special education advocacy project, the New York Office was honored for significant contributions to Habitat for Humanity over the years, and the Washington Office was recognized for outstanding work in the area of fair housing. In 2005, Jones Day lawyers invested a record amount of time on pro bono matters. Between 2000 and 2005, the total number of pro bono hours for the domestic offices increased nearly fivefold.
