UPCOMING ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION!

Register now for our upcoming roundtable on 14 September at 5:30pm hosted at Bloomberg’s offices! 

Rob Powell, Director of Pro Bono and Corporate Responsibility at Weil, Gotshal & Manges will be joining us to talk about best practices for collaborating in the pro bono space – whether with law firm partners or with other in house teams.  He’ll touch on the recent collaborative project we ran for Financial Institution Pro Bono Day as well as talk about some upcoming opportunities he is working on which are open to all our members. We’ll also hear from the CEO of LawWorks on different ways the in house community can get involved in pro bono.  As per previous roundtables, we’ll save plenty of time to discuss hot topics

  • Foster a culture of commitment to pro bono
  • Promote and improve pro bono service and delivery
  • Share knowledge, best practice and resources to build and strengthen in house pro bono service
  • Connect in house lawyers, charities and pro bono professionals through networking and communication
  • Collaborate to make the best use of our unique skill set and training for the benefit of others.
