New lawyers in the Empire State are going to have to donate 50 hours of pro bono legal services for those who can’t afford it before they can join the bar. Lippman says roughly 10 thousand prospective lawyers pass the bar exam in New York each year, which means 500-thousand hours of much needed legal assistance for those in need.

The requirement is likely to apply to next year’s graduating law school class.
