LexisNexis (www.lexisnexis.com) and Pro Bono Net (www.probono.net) have released a study indicating that pro bono work is heavily ingrained in the legal profession, and is driven primarily by a sense of personal commitment on the part of lawyers.

The survey found that those undertaking pro bono work are motivated by personal fulfillment goals and a dedication to issues important to them and their communities. Lawyers not volunteering their services often are interested in pro bono work, yet constrained by time and billing expectations.

The report describes concrete ways that firms and corporations can engage and support their attorneys in doing more pro bono work.
