Clinic in a Box® Program TrainingWednesday, October 29
This training session is for ACC Chapters and legal departments interested in co-hosting a Clinic in a Box® program. Developed by CPBO, these half-day legal audit clinics provide in-house counsel the opportunity to advise nonprofit organizations or small businesses while earning CLE credit. To obtain a limited support license, co-hosts must first either have hosted a clinic in the past or attend this training, during which CPBO will provide detailed instruction on hosting these events.  (Note that registration is required and there is a separate fee to participate in this program.)

Pro Bono Breakfast ♦ Thursday, October 30
At this breakfast, attendees will meet with other in-house counsel interested in pro bono and learn about pro bono trends and best practices from CPBO. Please let CPBO Project Assistant Josh Lefebvre know if you plan to attend the breakfast.

CPBO always looks forward to meeting with attendees when they have free time between programs. If you are interested in sitting down with CPBO for a few minutes to discuss options and initiatives for yourself, your legal department, or your chapter, contact CPBO to set up a time that is convenient for you.
