Everyday it seems I get another email about some pro bono opportunity. I feel like I am already working pro bono. In this economic climate there are three questions that are like knives in my heart. They are:
1. Would you be willing to volunteer?
2. Are you interested in Pro Bono opportunities?
3. Would you be willing to make a donation? (especially to law school)
My answers are no, no, and no. I already work in public interest. Once my > $200,000 degrees have paid for themselves, I would be happy to say yes. Until then I am insulted by the audacity of these requests.
