Our annual Summer Pro Bono and Public Interest Forum encourages summer associates and summer interns to make pro bono or public-interest work a part of their legal careers, and provides an introduction to several different types of public-interest practice.

Our 2017 Summer Forum distinguished keynote speaker was The Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Justice Ginsburg joined us for reflections on her distinguished career and remarks on the importance of public-interest law in our society.

After lunch and the keynote address, we held five different breakout sessions — introducing lawyers and law students to pro bono and public-interest career options and volunteer opportunities in the areas of death penalty & criminal law, civil rights & civil liberties, human rights & international law, local poverty law, and non-litigation & transactional practice.
