Rule 6.1 of the Virginia State Bar’s Rules of Professional Conduct says that “a lawyer should render at least two percent per year of the lawyer’s professional time to pro bono public legal services.” That 2% works out to be about 40 hours a year. LSNV created the Rule 6.1 Society to recognize and thank attorneys who perform at least 40 hours of pro bono work annually. Members of the Society receive an attractive lapel pin, a frame-able certificate of appreciation, and recognition on the LSNV website. The first year that attorneys qualify for membership in the Society, they will be Bronze members. The second year that they do they will be Silver members. Attorneys qualifying for three or more years will be Gold members.
