What is Pro Bono Legal Service?
Connecticut’s Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys (Rule 6.1) defines Pro Bono Publico legal services as:
 “… professional services at no fee or a reduced fee to persons of limited means or to public service or charitable groups or organizations, by service in activities for improving the law, the legal system or the legal profession, and by financial support for organizations that provide legal services to persons of limited means."
