Who made it to the 2024 list of top pro bono law firms?

The second edition of Canadian Lawyer’s 5-Star Pro Bono Firms has been revealed – recognizing firms for their outstanding commitment to pro bono work.  

The 2024 report celebrates the diverse range of initiatives that have grown stronger and deliver millions of dollars of free legal services to people who need them most.

From a pool of more than 50 prominent nominees, the 21 best pro bono law firms nationwide demonstrated excellence in their practices and policies to promote their pro bono work and build upon their contributions.

For the second consecutive year, Pro Bono Ontario (PBO) partnered with CL to identify the success factors that enable pro bono participation at an institutional level.    

For the mid-sized regional Aboriginal law litigation boutique JFK Law, headquartered in British Columbia, its exemplary dedication to pro bono work is deeply woven into its culture and driven by addressing access-to-justice issues. 

“Access-to-justice issues come to the fore with Indigenous Peoples, with everything from employment law matters to human rights matters,” says managing partner Sara Mainville.
