This panel will address concerns that associates have about engaging in pro
bono work while working for a law firm – large or small. The panelists
have extensive experience managing pro bono programs, working with associates,
and doing pro bono work of their own while at a firm. Panelists will
discuss how associates can seek out access to pro bono opportunities, how they
can balance their pro bono and billable obligations, and common mistakes
associates make with pro bono cases. Audience members will have the
opportunity to ask their own questions of the panelists as well.
Be sure to stick around for the New Lawyer's
following the program.
