It’s Pro Bono Podcast Monday: A Conversation with Jacqui MacLennan & Lou O’Neill

This week, Jacquelyn MacLennan and Louis O’Neill of White & Case*† join PBI on the Law Firm Pro Bono Project’s podcast, the Pro Bono Happy Hour, to discuss leading the firm’s global practice group and using a “closed feedback loop” to keep pro bono lawyers informed about the impact of their work and inspire others to join them. Lou and Jacqui share management tips and describe examples of meaningful pro bono projects, such as debt-for-nature swaps and advocacy efforts to promote education and women’s rights. White & Case recently hosted a unique gathering in New York City in connection with the UN General Assembly to foster collaboration among private sector and pro bono leaders to promote its Sustainable Development Goals, with special focus on Goal 16.3, whereby signatories pledge to: “Promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all.” Take 60 minutes to listen to our conversation with Jacqui and Lou describe how the firm promotes pro bono in each of its offices around the world.
