Best Practices in Pro Bono: Language Access

  • When: 28 September 2017, 8:45 am to 10:15 am
  • Where: Fried Frank (801 17th Street NW)
  • Cost: Free

Best Practices in Pro Bono offers an opportunity to share tips for increasing the effectiveness of your pro bono program. Through a facilitated discussion, pro bono coordinators at law firms, corporations, law schools, and legal services and advocacy organizations exchange ideas and share their experiences to improve the delivery of pro bono legal services. Our conversations focus both on the experiences of pro bono volunteers and the clients who receive free legal assistance.

We will gather for a light breakfast and networking at 8:45 am. The facilitated discussion will take place from 9:00 – 10:15 am.

Our September discussion will focus on the resources, challenges, and realities of language access in pro bono service. Our panelists will include:

  • Karen Grisez (Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson)
  • David Steib (Ayuda)
  • James Plunkett (Office of Court Interpreting Services & Language Access Program)

Our conversation will be moderated by D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center’s Lise Adams.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gather and learn from other pro bono coordinators from DC, MD and VA.
