Lone Star Legal Aid, in partnership with the Texarkana Bar Association and the Texarkana Young Lawyers Association, is proud to announce its 2012 Texarkana Pro Bono Celebration. The event is scheduled during National Pro Bono Celebration week, an initiative by the American Bar Association.
The event is scheduled for Monday, October 22 and Tuesday, October 23 and will take place at the new Texarkana Convention Center, located at 4610 Cowhorn Creek Road, Texarkana, TX 75503.
The event will feature two days of CLE. Each session is free to any attorney who will agree to take at least two cases pro bono through the Lone Star Legal Aid office, and each presentation will feature topics that a private attorney will find useful in day-to-day practice. Check-in will begin 15 minutes prior to each scheduled presentation.
An awards reception will be held on Tuesday, October 23 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. The reception will honor all attorneys who have accepted and completed pro bono cases for the Lone Star Legal Aid Texarkana branch office in the past year. An award will be presented to a solo practitioner and to a firm, and the Texarkana Gazette will be covering the event.
Please RSVP to Victoria Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate which CLE sessions you will attend, as well as if you will attend the Awards Reception.
