Upcoming Webinar: Education


Concerned about justice issues in education? Join us Tuesday, July 28 at 12:30 p.m. ET for the webinar “Pro Bono in Practice: Education.” This one-hour program, hosted in conjunction with West LegalEdCenter, is part of our “Best of the 2015 PBI Annual Conference” series of webinars, which reprise and supplement select sessions from the 2015 PBI Annual Conference.

Education is a fast-changing area and this program will explore the status of available pro bono opportunities, ranging from litigation to policy work; emerging legal issues; how to get started; and opportunities for collaboration. The following panelists will address pressing issues such as the school-to-prison pipeline, special education advocacy, homelessness, and charter schools:

  • Kaitlin Banner, Advancement Project
  • Nancy Drane, Children’s Law Center
  • Steve Schulman, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld*

Registration is free for Law Firm Pro Bono Project Member Firms. Law firm participants should contact Law Firm Pro Bono Project Assistant Eva Richardson for registration information.
