Summer associates haven’t even arrived yet, but the next recruiting season at major law firms will be here before we know it. 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, the Law Firm Pro Bono Project is mailing its annual Challenge poster to the career services offices of all ABA-accredited law schools. The poster lists every Challenge Signatory, raising the visibility of these firms to make them more attractive to the very students they are trying to recruit.
Challenge Signatories will also soon be receiving their posters in the mail. Be sure to hang your poster with extra pride in every firm office, as this year marks the 20th anniversary of the Challenge. PBI will be honoring this milestone throughout the year and we encourage firms with 50 or more lawyers to join our efforts to improve access to justice. Please contact Law Firm Pro Bono Project Assistant Eva Richardson for information on becoming a Challenge Signatory or for additional posters.
