Pro Bono As We See It
October 15, 2015

Ask a General Counsel/Ask a Firm Chair


PBI’s ninth annual Leadership Convocation will take place at the offices of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel*† in New York on Thursday, November 5, preceding the 2015 Pro Bono Institute Annual Dinner.

Speakers scheduled to appear include Brett J. Hart, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, United Continental Holdings, Inc.**; Gregory B. Jordan, Executive Vice President, General Counsel, and Head of Regulatory and Government Affairs, The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.**; John M. Koneck, President, Fredrikson & Byron*†; and Regina M. Pisa, Chairman Emeritus, Goodwin Procter*†.

As we “celebrate the future of pro bono,” our distinguished panelists will discuss the shifts in the economics and dynamics of major law firms and in-house legal departments that inevitably impact pro bono. This thought-provoking conversation with senior law firm and legal department leaders will provide important insight about the forces and trends that will shape the future of pro bono.

Attendance is limited to law firms and legal departments that are sponsoring the 2015 PBI Annual Dinner. For more information about sponsorship opportunities and event registration and details, please contact the PBI Events office at 202.973.8720 or
