The Nebraska State Bar Association Legal Services Committee is responsible for recommending, reviewing and approving the policies and guidelines regulating volunteer legal services, including private attorney participation, client eligibility for services and program record keeping. The Committee also assists in recruiting private attorneys and other professionals, establishing and maintaining a program of awards and recognition for the volunteer attorneys and maintaining the funding for legal services. It studies and makes recommendations on the referral of non-pro bono cases, including modest means and other special interest panels. The Committee performs other functions as may be assigned by the NSBA Executive Council or President. The Committee meets quarterly to evaluate VLP programs and to identify ways to encourage lawyers to engage in pro bono service.
