There’s No "I" in Pro Bono

This article from Inside Counsel discusses how inside counsel can enjoy the same breadth of pro bono opportunity and involvement as their outside counsel colleagues.
The article recognizes the trend that, rather than trying to create a comprehensive pro bono program of their own, in-house counsel are increasingly “partnering” with outside counsel to take advantage of outside counsel’s existing pro bono programs.
The partnership can involve a stand-alone project or it can involve an ongoing project with a similar, recurring set of circumstances.
Regardless of the form of service provided, few projects would suffer from the addition of dedicated attorneys, and therefore most projects would benefit from outside and in-house counsel working together as a team.
