Our annual Government Pro Bono Roundtable will cover all your questions about doing pro bono work as a federal or local 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 panel discussion, you’ll learn about established pro bono programs for federal government lawyers as well as emerging opportunities for doing pro bono work as a lawyer for the D.C. government.

Our expert panel, comprising government lawyers from different agencies, will share tips for finding pro bono opportunities and ensuring your pro bono experience is meaningful and productive.  You’ll also hear from Laura Klein, the Pro Bono Program Manager for the U.S. Department of Justice.

Our panel will be moderated by our board member Julie Abbate, currently at DOJ, formerly a legal-services lawyer.

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