Since our founding in 1866, Sidley has cultivated a tradition of, and commitment to, pro bono service. As we have grown, so has the reach of our pro bono efforts. From Alabama to Arizona, Colombia to Madagascar, Sidley lawyers and staff devote more than 100,000 hours annually to serving those most in need. Our pro bono work has influenced the legality of Americans to live freely and proudly; protected the constitutional rights of prisoners, including the rights of inmates on death row; saved the lives of immigrants who fled their home countries seeking religious freedom; and lifted up women trying to make a better life for themselves and their families by starting businesses in developing countries.
Some of the more recent work we have done to help our clients and communities over the last year is included in our 2017 Pro Bono Highlights.
