CUA Law Professors Faith Mullen and J. P. Ogilvy
were recognized on Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll

 

CUA Law Professors Faith Mullen and J. P. Ogilvy are included in the 2014 Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll. The annual list honors area attorneys who contribute 50 hours per year or more to serving the legal needs of people living in poverty.

The Honor Roll began in 2011 as part of the National Celebration of Pro Bono. Along with the D.C. Access to Justice Commission and the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program, the District of Columbia Courts invited attorneys to self-report their pro bono contributions over the course of a calendar year.

Chief Judge Eric T. Washington and Chief Judge Lee F. Satterfield on behalf of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and the Superior Court of the District of Columbia respectively, expressed their gratitude to the attorneys who were included in this year’s list.

The judges wrote, “The District of Columbia is truly fortunate to have an array of talented and passionate legal services providers, who work tirelessly to meet the legal needs of those who could not otherwise afford legal assistance.”

The number of names on the Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll has grown every year since its inception. In 2014, 4,257 attorneys performed 50 hours or more of pro bono service. More than half of that group performed 100 hours or more, qualifying them for recognition on the High Honor Roll. Honor Roll members represent a broad swath of the local legal community, hailing from 150 law firms, scores of solo practices, federal and local government agencies, and public interest organizations.
