The Utah State Bar Pro Bono Commission is a state-wide body tasked with improving voluntary pro bono legal services throughout the state. Pursuant to Rule 2-201 of the Utah Rules of Judicial Administration, the Utah Judicial Council endorsed the creation of the Pro Bono Commission, which was launched in April 2012. The Commission continues to recruit volunteer lawyers from private law firms, in-house counsel, and government offices to provide vital legal services to those in need and increase access to equal justice.
