CPBO 2014 Challenge® Survey Reporting Opens

CPBO Challenge initiative banner

Reporting season for the 2014 calendar year is now open. CPBO recently circulated its annual CPBO Challenge® survey to the 140 CPBO Challenge® signatories. Each year, CPBO polls signatories about their pro bono efforts as they relate to the aspirational goals of the CPBO Challenge® statement, including 50 percent participation in pro bono by legal staff. Responses are kept confidential and reported only in aggregate in the annual CPBO Challenge® Report. Thank you to all who have already responded! For those who haven’t, don’t forget to respond by June 19.

Interested in becoming a signatory to the CPBO Challenge® initiative — the only national benchmark that allows legal departments to track and measure the growth of in-house pro bono? All signatory legal departments receive information, guidance, and tailored support from CPBO to strengthen existing pro bono programs or to start new ones.
