Don’t Miss Out: Pro Bono in Practice Sessions
As the 2013 PBI Annual Conference nears, The PBEye would like to highlight a few sessions that address practical issues many attorneys and staff face in doing pro bono. Back by popular demand, the Pro Bono in Practice sessions bring together law firm, in-house, and public interest leaders whose work is focused on a specific topical area and those interested in working in more specified areas. The topics this year, which will all be covered on the second day of the Conference, include:
- Veterans – 9:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.
- Post Prison Re-Entry – 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
- Immigration – 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
These lively sessions, arranged as discussions, explore pro bono opportunities and developments specific to the given field. The conversations outline emerging issues, how to get started, opportunities for collaboration, and whether and how, given the state of the law and legal needs, pro bono delivery systems can be taken to scale in ways that range from litigation to transactional to policy work.
