Our Government Pro Bono Roundtable is 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 info about the many different types of pro bono work available to government lawyers.
Our panel will include:
- Josephine Bahn, FDIC
- Andy Doyle, U.S. Department of Justice
- Laura Klein, Pro Bono Program Manager, U.S. Department of Justice
- Prianka Sharma, Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration
The panel will be moderated by Deborah Birnbaum, Assistant General Counsel at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, and Washington Council of Lawyers board member. The government lawyer panelists will share their experiences from their personal perspectives in their individual capacities, and will not be speaking on behalf of their agencies.
