LawWorks/Philadelphia VIP is holding a Corporate Pro Bono Day on October 18, 2018, from 4:00 PM-7:00 PM.

Preceding a clinic for local small business, a one-hour volunteer attorney training open to in-house counsel and attorneys from Morgan Lewis will be held at Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP, 1701 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103. This will cover the corporate formation of micro-enterprises (includes 1 free CLE credit).

This will be followed by the clinic for local small businesses at a Center City location where each participating attorney will provide post-clinic legal assistance to one participating small business on a discrete matter.

Why: Small Businesses often confront legal issues that impact their ability to be successful and lack the financial resources to hire an attorney.

Who: You! Use your legal skills to help local small businesses identify and then address key legal issues (e.g., choice of entity, reviewing contracts, creating/updating employee handbooks).

Volunteer Attorneys should use the Register Now link below to register as a volunteer attorney for this event. 

Small Businesses should contact LawWorks/Philadelphia VIP to express interest in participating in the clinic.
