Please join the Chief Judges of the D.C. Courts as we launch Pro Bono Week 2019! We will celebrate pro bono attorneys for their service and welcome those who want to learn more about how to expand access to justice for people in our community who cannot afford counsel.
Our celebration will feature:
• The Honorable Anna Blackburne-Rigsby, Chief Judge, D.C. Court of Appeals
• The Honorable Robert Morin, Chief Judge, D.C. Superior Court
• Susie Hoffman, Partner, Crowell & Moring LLP and DC Bar President
Start your day with a light breakfast, a hearty “thank you” from the Chief Judges, and an opportunity to learn how you can make a difference by providing much-needed representation right here in our D.C. Courts!
No matter what your area of practice, your unique skills as a lawyer mean the world to a District resident who needs representation to resolve a legal matter that impacts their family, housing, safety or economic security.
Pro bono lawyers impact lives. Local pro bono impacts our community.
Thank you to Crowell & Moring for hosting!
