I Don't Have A Pro Bono Coordinator In My Office, How Can I Do Pro Bono?

  • Pro Bono

Trying to do pro bono work without the resources and support available to attorneys in Big Law can be daunting.  This panel will identify "how-tos" and best practices for attorneys seeking to perform pro bono services without institutional assistance, and provide an opportunity to network with people who are doing it.  A tutorial on Pro Bono Net will also be given. 

Moderator: John H. Ogden, Of Counsel, Falcon & Singer P.C.

Introduction: Debra L. Raskin, President, New York City Bar Association; Partner, Vladeck, Waldman, Elias & Engelhard, P.C.
