    The Supreme Court of New Jersey has adopted two new court rules relating to pro bono practice along with conforming amendments to the Rules of Professional Conduct and various court rules. The new rules and rule changes,with minor modifications made the Court, were recommended by the New Jersey State Bar Association's Pro Bono Task Force " order to clarify, streamline, and encourage pro bono practice..." The Task Force was formed to make recommendations to increase the provision of pro bono services in the state. The final Report "Closing the Justice Gap" was issued May 2012 and was unanimously adopted by the Board of Trustees of the NJSBA. For a copy of the report CLICK HERE. For a copy of the rules and conforming amendments, effective January 1, 2015, CLICK HERE.

    This month, VLJ received a challenge grant from the Bershad Family Foundation to help fund our legal projects. The Foundation will match DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, up to $15,000, all funds donated to VLJ by November 1. That means your $50 donation turns into a $100 donation. Your $500 donation turns into $1000! Can you help?
