Pro Bono Goes Local: A Launch Celebration for DC Pro Bono Week

  • 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM
  • Eastern Time (US & Canada)
  • By: Washington Council of Lawyers
  • Virtual Event
  • Recruitment Event

Please join the Chief Judges of the D.C. Courts as we launch Pro Bono Week 2020! We will celebrate pro bono attorneys for their service and hard work, 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 opening remarks by:

  • The Honorable Anna Blackburne-Rigsby, Chief Judge, D.C. Court of Appeals
  • The Honorable Anita Josey-Herring, Chief Judge, D.C. Superior Court

Then we’ll hear from local pro bono superstars about their pro bono experiences, the professional rewards, and how you can become involved.


Bring you breakfast and start your day with 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 your experience level or practice area, you can positively influence the life of someone who needs representation to resolve a legal matter that impacts their family, housing, safety, or economic security.
