We’re getting excited for the upcoming PBI Annual Conference and we hope you are too! This year, we have expanded programming and networking opportunities exclusive to law firm and in-house attendees. The Joint Opening Lunch at 11:45 a.m. on March 4 will offer, for the first time, an opportunity for law firm and in-house attendees to kick-off their substantive Conference experience together. The following distinguished panel of experts will provide insights about the forces and trends that will shape the legal profession and the future of pro bono:
• Mark Chandler, Cisco Systems, Inc.**
• Greg Jordan, The PNC Financial Services Group**
• Kim Koopersmith, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld*†
• Mark Wasserman, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan*†
• David Wilkins, Harvard Law School
Join us to explore developments in the economics and practice of law at major firms and in-house legal departments and how they may impact pro bono.
Also new this year for law firm and in-house attendees are Regional Joint Networking Exchanges, which offer dedicated time for you to meet or reconnect with pro bono leaders from your geographic region or global home base to share experiences, explore legal needs and opportunities for collaboration, and to discuss issues of particular interest to your specific communities. The networking starts at 10:30 a.m. on March 4 – don’t miss out!
Whether you are new to the Conference or an event veteran, we hope that you will enjoy these new opportunities exclusively-designed for law firm and in-house attendees. Bring your appetite, questions, and observations!
