Please join us for a social coffee to celebrate the accomplishments of this women's cooperative of lawyers on planned leave. Last year at this time, we celebrated our first 100 hours. This year we are closing in on 1000.

The West Cook Pro Bono Network brings more attorneys to pro bono work by creating opportunities for women attorneys on leave to volunteer easily and locally. We work under a model which requires our projects to allow teams (for backup), local training, and flexible hours. In a year and 1/2 over 45 attorneys have actively volunteered and we continue to grow. Noting that we have struck a chord, we plan to initiate chapters throughout the Chicago-area.

Part of our celebration will include a short talk and discussion entitled, "Have To vs. Want To," led by Melissa Ford of Empowered Parenting. Melissa is also an attorney who, in the past, wanted to find ways to stay in the profession while on leave.

All our welcome and we look forward to meeting you.
