Reminder: Partner Award Nominations

There’s just one month left to submit your nominations for the 2013 CPBO Pro Bono Partner Award so contact us right away if you know of a pro bono partnership deserving of recognition.  Nominations for the award must be a partnership comprising at least one legal department and one or more law firms and/or public interest group partners. CPBO will present the award at the 2013 PBI Annual Dinner on November 7 in New York.

The Partner Award recognizes innovative team approaches to pro bono work involving in-house legal departments, law firms, and public interest groups.  CPBO presented last year’s award to the Ford Motor Company** Office of the General Counsel, in partnership with Dykema Gossett PLLC*†, Legal Aid and Defender Association, Inc., and Michigan Community Resources, for their innovative partnerships to serve the legal needs of individuals and families and local nonprofits.  For a full list of previous awardees please click here.
