Washington Council of Lawyers and the D.C. Circuit Standing Committee on Pro Bono Legal Services invite all government lawyers to attend our Government Pro Bono Roundtable on Tuesday, February 4, from 12:30-1:30 pm at the U.S. Courthouse for the DC Circuit (333 Constitution Avenue NW).
The Government Pro Bono Roundtable is a free brown-bag lunch program and the perfect opportunity to learn about doing pro bono work as a government lawyer. Pro bono work can be a rewarding part of a government career; you just need to be familiar with the resources, policies, and strategies that allow you to do the work effectively.
At this lively discussion, you’ll learn about established pro bono programs for government lawyers. Our pro bono experts will share why pro bono work is meaningful to them, tips for managing your schedule and finding the support you need, and information about the many different types of pro bono work available to government lawyers.
Our panel features:
- Josephine Bahn, FDIC
- Laura Klein, Pro Bono Program Manager at the U.S. Department of Justice
- Lucian Martinez, U.S. Department of Justice
- Marissa Schnaith, U.S. Department of Labor
Our panel will be moderated by Deborah Birnbaum, Washington Council of Lawyers board member and attorney with the U.S. Department of Labor.
Bring your lunch, a government-issued ID, and your questions!
