Join us to learn how in-house lawyers can do pro bono work. Our panel will (1) discuss the benefits of pro bono for in-house lawyers—whether they are new to legal practice or have been at it for years; (2) identify a variety of legal-services organizations with strong pro bono programs and explore different pro bono partnership models; (3) answer thorny questions about conflicts of interest, malpractice insurance, and the unauthorized practice of law.
Our panelists include:
- Susan Hackett, Legal Executive Leadership, LLC
- Luise Welby, Freddie Mac
- Kathi Westcott, Pew Charitable Trusts
Our moderator will be Pat McGlone (Ullico Inc.), the current President of the D.C. Bar.
Lunch will be provided thanks to the generosity of our host, Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer.
We are pleased to co-sponsor this program with the Association of Corporate Counsel for the National Capital Region.
