Webinar Recap: Trends in In-House Pro Bono

Did you tune in? Last month CPBO moderated a webinar exploring recent trends in in-house pro bono.  Panelists Tianne Bataille, senior counsel at Accenture LLC**, and John Frantz, vice president and associate general counsel at Verizon Communications Inc.**, discussed what their respective pro bono programs are up to and the most cutting edge developments in in-house pro bono.  Topics of discussion included integrating pro bono and corporate social responsibility, developing longer term and more extensive projects, and global pro bono.

The webinar attracted a diverse audience, consisting of in-house counsel, law firm lawyers, and members of the public interest community.  Panelists answered participant questions regarding malpractice insurance, partnerships with law firms, and budgeting for pro bono.

The program recording is currently available online.  For instructions to access the webinar, please contact CPBO Project Assistant Sarah Neuman.  CLE credit is available for this program in many states.
