Calling All Marketplace of Ideas Presenters

Planning is underway for the 2014 PBI Annual Conference to be held March 5-7 in Washington D.C.  One of the perennial highlights of the Conference are the “Marketplace of Ideas” sessions, which are fast-paced opportunities for presenters to share cutting-edge pro bono projects and for attendees to learn about new offerings, infrastructure, and other replicable pro bono developments.  The format has been so popular that in 2012, we added a second Marketplace session to address transactional (non-litigation/business related) pro bono projects.  This year, we are adding a third Marketplace session to highlight innovative global pro bono projects.

We invite those wishing to serve as a presenter at one of these three Marketplace of Ideas sessions to submit a brief proposal describing your initiative so that we can ensure adequate time and capacity for all presentations.  Please send submissions to Law Firm Pro Bono Project Assistant Eva Richardson.  Due to time limitations, we may not be able to accept all proposals this year.

We look forward to learning more and sharing new ideas and projects at the 2014 Annual Conference!
