The BBA Public Service Committee implements the BBA Public Service Policy by 1) vetting prospective BBA public service projects; 2) reviewing ongoing projects; 3) providing advice and consultation to BBA leadership; and 4) supporting the BBA’s mission. This committee also acts as a valuable networking and information resource for supporting the legal community’s involvement in pro bono and community service.
