DC Pro Bono Week 2021: Pro Bono in a Virtual Age: A Conversation with KIND, Legal Aid Society, and Bread for the City
Join Superior Court Judge McLean and representatives from three different DC Pro Bono mentoring programs in a discussion covering the logistics of committing to doing pro bono in a virtual age. The panel includes a conversation with a Superior Court Judge and experienced pro bono volunteers offering first-hand knowledge about doing pro bono virtually/socially distant in 2020/2021. We hope this will be an interactive dialogue, providing participants an opportunity to ask the questions that will help them better understand not only what pro bono looks likes now but also which pro bono program may be a good fit for their interests and capacity.
Our conversation leaders include:
Judge McLean, Associate Judge, Domestic Relations Calendar, District of Columbia Superior Court
Rebecca Lindhurst – Managing Attorney, Bread for the City
John W. Zipp – Associate, Covington & Burling
Lauren Sullivan – Staff Attorney, Kids in Need of Defense, Inc.
Joanne Hawana – Member, Mintz
Sylvia Soltis – Senior Staff Attorney, Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia
Tiffany Cheung – Associate, Baker Botts, LLP
The discussion will be moderated by Sandra Zegarra, a Direct Representation Attorney with KIND.
