About 2024 CL 5-Star Pro Bono Firms

Canadian Lawyer’s second annual 5-Star Pro Bono Firms special report recognizes Canada’s law firms that demonstrate pro bono infrastructure at an institutional level. The assessment criteria are evidence of pro bono infrastructure (e.g., pro bono committee, ability to quantify partner participation, etc.), count of pro bono time as billable time/towards targets (for large/national firms only), cost awards/charitable giving to A2J organizations and minimum five hours per lawyer pro bono time or active pro bono programs for in-house legal departments.

The Pro Bono Ontario and CL teams reviewed all nominations, examining how each firm had made a meaningful contribution to the industry – along with benchmarking against the other entries – to determine the 21 5-Star Pro Bono Firms.
