I don’t understand how in this day and age, especially when lawyers are expected or required (or even volunteer) to have real-life experience; especially when the benefit is for others and the community - how on earth can an employer take this stance? I suspect that by asking the question, the answer is already known.

I had a similar experience not so long ago, when I was offered a position as an assistant coroner. I was a partner at a well known top 20 firm. There was a business case - least of all profile raising and extending skills - but the firm wanted a quantification, which wasn’t possible.

My advice would be that the questioner considers her own values and if they don’t reflect those of her employer, then find one who does!
