Each fall, as part of the annual National Pro Bono Celebration, we organize DC Pro Bono Week.
This year, we are exploring ways to ensure justice for all. We will showcase lots of opportunities to do pro bono work, learn new pro bono skills, meet other pro bono lawyers, and expand pro bono horizons. We will host volunteer opportunities, and discussions about the greatest pro bono needs and how to become involved, celebrate pro bono rock stars, and hopefully inspire you to take on a pro bono case. This year there will be almost a month of events celebrating pro bono.
Events kick off on Friday, October 13. The full schedule includes legal advice clinics, panel discussions, court tours, and more! There is truly something for everyone.
In addition to the main DC Pro Bono Week events, a series of Affiliated Trainings take place before, during, and after Pro Bono Week. If you want to learn something new or just brush up on your skills, these trainings will give you the confidence to take on a pro bono case.
Spread the word and join the conversation on social media using #DCPBW23.
