PBI 2022 Annual Conference

PBI is committed to providing robust programming with the flexibility to meet our Conference attendees’ needs and interests. We recognize that the pandemic continues to impact communities in different ways, and some people may not be able to attend the PBI 2022 Annual Conference in person. Therefore, PBI will present two experiences for the 2022 Annual Conference:

In-Person: Tuesday, March 8 – Thursday, March 10, 2022
Virtual: Wednesday, April 6 – Thursday, April 7, 2022

In-Person registration includes access to the additional Virtual programming. For those unable to attend In-Person, PBI offers a Virtual-only registration option.


In-Person programming will include staples such as Law Firm Pro Bono 101, Experienced Law Firm Pro Bono Leaders Roundtable, In-House Pro Bono: The Basics, In-House Pro Bono: Mature Crowdsourcing, The Public Interest Exchange, Public Interest: Hot Topics, as well as interactive sessions and workshops covering a variety of current and emerging topics that impact law firms, in-house departments, and public interest organizations. In addition, In-Person networking will include PBI’s Pro Bono EXPO; the Laurie D. Zelon Pro Bono Award presentation will be a highlight of In-Person networking events.

Virtual programming will include select recorded In-Person sessions plus original webinars, networking opportunities, a Pro Bono Fair, and a special plenary.
