The 2017 ACC Annual Meeting may feel like a ways away, but it’s never too early to start deciding which sessions to check out! There will be a number of in-house pro bono-related events, including the session “Ethics of In-house Pro Bono” (Tuesday, October 12, 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm). The session will provide an overview of the ethical issues in-house attorneys face when representing clients in pro bono matters in the U.S. and around the globe, as well as address practical issues related to in-house pro bono. Topics will include administering a pro bono program, managing conflicts (both legal and business), and securing malpractice insurance. CPBO is excited to announce the following speakers will be presenting at the session:

In addition, don’t forget to register for the Clinic in a Box® program (Monday, October 16, 8:30 am – 1:15 pm) to assist local nonprofits and earn CLE. Contact CPBO Project Assistant, Virginia Lyon.
