Pro bono publico landscape architecture
May I underline Tom’s page on pro bono landscape architecture by referring to the example of the American Bar Association whose ethical rules require members to contribute 50 hours of pro bono work each year, to quote their website:
” Thus, all lawyers should aspire to render some legal services without fee or expectation of fee for the good of the public.” ref. http://www.americanbar.org/groups/legal_education/resources/pro_bono.htm and from their model rules of conduct Rule 6.1 “Voluntary Pro Bono Publico Service”.
In England the relevant statement (no hours defined) is on the Law Society website: http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/support-services/practice-management/pro-bono/
and the National Pro Bono Centre aims to support the legal profession in the provision of pro bono services, and assist looking for pro bono services, see
The RICS also promotes pro bono work, see its web page for its Charity Property Help which offers “charities and voluntary organisations a minimum one-hour consultation with an RICS-regulated firm free of charge”, ref.
