Our Government Pro Bono Roundtable is the perfect opportunity to learn about doing pro bono work as a federal 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 panelists include:

  • Jonathan Jacobson, Department of Justice
  • Nick Kazmerski, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
  • Laura Klein, Pro Bono Coordinator for the Department of Justice,
  • Catalina Martinez, Small Business Administration (and our 2018 Government Pro Bono Award recipient)

The panel will be moderated by our own Liz Symonds, government attorney and Washington Council of Lawyers board member.  Jonathan, Nick and Catalina will share their experiences from their personal perspectives in their individual capacities, and will not be speaking on behalf of their agencies.

Bring your lunch, a government-issued ID, and your questions!
