Last year, New York announced that it would require fifty (50) hours of pro bono legal work for bar admission in the Empire State. Will other state jurisdictions follow? As a law student at the Charlotte School of Law, how do you feel about this?

UC Irvine Dean Erwin Chemerinsky advocates for required pro bono bar admission everywhere…what do you think?
