Global Pro Bono in Denver

Our friends at CPBO are excited to announce a new session during the Association of Corporate Counsel** Annual Meeting this October in Denver— “Exploring an Innovative Legal Engagement Tool: Global Pro Bono.”  New to ACC’s Annual Meeting line-up, this interactive session will explore the intersection of global corporate citizenship and engagement within a legal department, paying particular attention to how global pro bono can be used as a tool to stimulate and engage experienced and knowledgeable legal staff.  Topics of discussion will include:

  • What accounts for the increased interest among legal departments in global pro bono?
  • What are some examples of successful global pro bono projects?
  • What are the benefits of global pro bono work? What are the concerns?
  • What will global pro bono look like in the future?

Highly-regarded panelists include Bruce Ives, vice president and deputy general counsel at Hewlett-Packard**, Esteban Mazzucco, international senior corporate counsel at The Clorox International Company**, and Michael Sposato, deputy general counsel at Caterpillar Inc**.  The session will take place during the conference on October 25,  from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. 

To find out more about the session or to learn about global pro bono opportunities for in-house legal departments, contact Eve Runyon, director of CPBO.  CPBO looks forward to seeing you in Denver!
