In-House Pro Bono Program and Fair: Making Pro Bono Work in a Virtual World
Hosted by ACC NCR & Washington Council of Lawyers
Remote representation is here to stay and can feel even more intimidating and unique in the pro bono setting. Join the Association of Corporate Counsel National Capital Region and Washington Council of Lawyers as we invite an experienced panel of in-house volunteers and legal service coordinators who will share best practices, lessons learned, and tools for success that enable pro bono volunteers to navigate all aspects of virtual client representation, including clinics, limited scope representations, and even remote court proceedings.
The presentation will take place 12 – 1 pm ET and will be followed by an online pro bono fair 1 – 2 pm ET, during which attendees will be able to select up to four break-out sessions featuring legal services organizations and in-house volunteers discussing volunteer opportunities. Registrants may attend either or both the program and fair.
