The Esther F. Lardent Hall of Fame for Excellence in Pro Bono was established in 2016, in memory of Pro Bono Institute’s founding president, and recognizes individuals and organizations that have shown an extraordinary commitment to pro bono and have made a profound impact on advancing the aspirational goal of access to justice for all.
Those recognized have demonstrated a significant commitment to pro bono over a substantial period of time, demonstrated exemplary leadership promoting access to justice, or served as a thought leader and inspiration to the legal profession.
Hall of Fame inductees will be acknowledged during a special ceremony at the PBI Annual Conference.
