Recruiting season at major law firms will be here before we know it, and many law students around the country are looking to join firms where pro bono is an integral part of the culture. Every year we are honored to be able to promote our Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge® Signatories and their demonstrated commitment to pro bono. Accordingly, last week the Law Firm Pro Bono Project distributed its annual Challenge poster to the career services offices of all ABA-accredited law schools. The poster lists every Challenge Signatory, raises the visibility of these firms to make them more attractive to the very students they are trying to recruit, and is an easy reference for students looking for future employment with a strong pro bono ethos.
On our recent trip to Minneapolis, we were delighted to see the posters prominently displayed at the offices of several Signatories. Be sure to hang your poster with pride at your firm and raise the visibility of pro bono within the firm as well. Firms with 50 or more lawyers are welcome to join the Challenge at any point in the year. Please contact Law Firm Project Assistant Eva Richardson for information on becoming a Challenge Signatory or for additional posters.
