The PBEye invites in-house counsel and staff to join CPBO March 23-25 at the 2016 PBI Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. The Conference gives pro bono leaders from legal departments, law firms, and public interest organizations from around the world an opportunity to network and discuss ways to improve access to justice through pro bono.

For new leaders of existing programs or leaders of new programs, programming kicks off on the morning of March 23 with a revamped getting started session:

In-House Pro Bono: Top Ten Basics8:30 – 10:15 am
This session is designed for pro bono leaders of legal departments that are in the process of creating or re-launching a pro bono program and new pro bono leaders of existing programs. Experienced legal department pro bono leaders will discuss the top 10 things you need to know about in-house pro bono, from insurance to selecting projects to leadership structure. Pre-registration is required.

Please keep in mind that pre-registration is required for this small workshop as space is limited and only available to those who are new pro bono leaders or leaders of new pro bono programs on a first-come, first-served basis, so register early!

Those who attend this session will join other in-house and law firm attendees at Regional Joint Networking Exchanges (10:30 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.) and Networking Lunch (11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.).  The In-House Track will resume at 1:15 p.m. with in-house specific sessions and networking opportunities.
