Documenting your 50 hour Pro Bono Requirement for NY Bar admission

Post by Pro Bono »

The 50-hour Pro Bono requirement is a bar admission requirement. It is not required to graduate with your JD, nor to sit for the bar exam.

Link to 50 hour Form Affidavit for Applicant’s Compliance with the Pro Bono Requirement is at: https://www.nybarexam.org/Admission/F- ... ments.pdf . You want to complete these now or at the end of the semester, so you do not have any trouble locating your supervising attorney when you are applying for admission to the bar and have time deadlines. In addition, you May also want to obtain any non-pro bono law-related employment forms.

The Law Related Employment Affidavit is available at: https://www.nybarexam.org/Admission/D-B ... oyment.pdf

YOU MUST KEEP THESE FORMS AND SUBMIT THEM WITH YOUR APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION TO THE BAR AFTER YOU TAKE THE BAR EXAM. DO NOT TRY TO SUBMIT THEM TO THE LAW SCHOOL.
