Ever worked with a client who couldn’t concentrate on their legal issue because they were worried about something else? This conversation will be about the role and experience of pro bono attorneys working with clients who have multiple, overlapping needs, including non-legal needs. We will hear from panelists who work at organizations with interdisciplinary services combining legal and non-legal services, such as medical-legal partnerships, to learn how those models impact their pro bono program.
We will also hear from pro bono facilitators about challenges and opportunities when non-legal needs arise while representing clients. We’ll explore what is working well, the gaps, and ways that legal services staff and pro bono attorneys can maintain defined roles while working together to holistically support clients.
Bring your lunch and your questions. We’ll provide the cookies and the answers. Pro bono coordinators from law firms, corporations, legal services providers, nonprofits, and government agencies are welcome to join the conversation!
