Subject line: Notice of Assignment to the 2017 Pro Bono Panel for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois
What does this mean? It means I’m going to get assigned to represent a pro se prisoner on a federal case, for which I will not be compensated.

Well that sucks…
Also, I’m remembering that episode of Ally McBeal where she had to take a criminal case and she was all freaked out because she was afraid of criminals. And everybody was like “Jesus Christ, quirky is one thing, but you’re a lawyer” and she was all “aieeeee!” and running away from basically everything because she weighed thirty-four pounds and most of that was hair and lip gloss.
I mean, that’s not you. I remember her getting paid, like, always. Even by the clients she slept with, which… hmm.
