Attorney Interest Surveys

Date of Publication: 2008

Conducting an internal pro bono interest survey can be a useful diagnostic aid to pro bono managers.  The information gathered from firm attorneys can help you uncover weaknesses in your pro bono program and identify specific areas for improvement.  The feedback that you receive can help you identify new substantive areas of pro bono work to pursue and link new offerings to attorneys’ particular interests and talents.  The model survey has been designed in several formats: a long form master survey; a short form survey; a survey for lateral hires; a survey for recent law school graduates; and a survey for corporate/business lawyers.  The models are meant to be adapted and you should tailor any of the versions to fit your particular needs.
