Documenting Your Pro Bono Work

To document your pro bono work, you will need to fill out your Affidavit (PDF) form and have your supervising attorney verify the work and hours.

You also need to fill out a law-related employment form (PDF). You DO NOT have to fill out a law-related employment form for your pro bono work. However, you DO have to fill out a Law Related Employment form for any other law-related work you have done. Even for unpaid work, including clinics, externships and volunteer work, this form needs to be filled out.

You are responsible for keeping the completed forms until you are asked for them as part of your application for admission sent from the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court after you take the New York State Bar Examination.  In the First Department, the application is not sent until the Board of Law Examiners certifies that you have passed the bar examination and the MPRE.
