CPBO to Host “In-House Pro Bono: How to Start” Session at the 2014 ACC Annual Meeting
CPBO has a lot planned this year for its trip to the Big Easy for the 2014 ACC Annual Meeting from October 28-31. On Thursday October 30, CPBO will host a session on “In-House Pro Bono: How to Start.” The session will provide an overview on how to develop pro bono at your legal department or ACC chapter through guidance and best practices; it will also provide information on specific opportunities available to in-house counsel, regardless of department or chapter size.
For many years in-house pro bono was a new concept at a handful of legal departments and ACC chapters and an unknown concept to most. Now engagement in in-house pro bono spans the continuum from novice to experienced and mature. For in-house counsel, the ACC Annual Meeting session provides a great opportunity to consider ways to get involved and improve access to justice through pro bono service.
The session will include as panelists Exelon Corporation’s** Associate General Counsel, Traci Braun; The Clorox Company’s** Corporate Counsel, Adam Brink; and WPX Energy, Inc.’s** Senior Counsel, Wendy Brooks.
For more information about CPBO’s ACC Annual Meeting session on October 30, please contact Eve Runyon. We look forward to seeing you there!
