212 Achievement Award
Kaye Scholer's pro bono efforts reflect the firm's commitment to the community, and are essential to the development of our lawyers. This commitment led the firm to become a charter member of the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge, which requires that at least three percent of our overall practice must consist of pro bono work. We meet or exceed this challenge each year by providing quality legal assistance to a diverse range of clients. 全部显示

In 2005, Kaye Scholer increased its commitment when it endorsed the Association of the Bar of the City of New York's "Statement of Pro Bono Principles," which pledged that all lawyers would perform an aggregate amount of 50 or more hours of pro bono work each year.

We are particularly proud of our 30-year tradition of taking on difficult habeas and clemency petitions for indigent death row inmates. The former Chair of Kaye Scholer's Executive Committee set an example by personally handling several death penalty cases, including arguing Beck v. Alabama (1980) and Lowenfield v. Phelps (1988) in the United States Supreme Court.

We have long been active in areas such as asylum, protecting the rights of low-income citizens, and supporting advocacy groups. Our lawyers frequently represent pro bono clients in U.S. district courts and circuit courts of appeals. We also provide counsel on contract, corporate, employment, intellectual property and real estate issues to many not-for-profit organizations (including those created by social entrepreneurs who have been awarded Echoing Green Fellowships) and to microentrepreneurs.

Kaye Scholer's lawyers are heavily involved in numerous philanthropic organizations and bar associations, including the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the City Bar Justice Center, Echoing Green, Inwood House, LatinoJustice PRLDEF, Legal Momentum, the Metropolitan Black Bar Association, the New York Bar Foundation, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest and The Legal Aid Society.
