Back to School . . . Back to Pro Bono

schoolIt’s officially back to school season! As you say goodbye to the slower pace of summer life and gear up for fall, make sure pro bono is on your agenda.

As you stock up on school supplies, visit the Law Firm Pro Bono Project’s Resource Clearinghouse, which contains publications, best practices, surveys, model policies, and other materials on law firm pro bono. We have created an instructional video to help you quickly and easily navigate the Resource Clearinghouse. The brief tutorial will show you how to register, access the Members-only page, download and purchase documents, and search for specific key words or publications. All materials, which are updated frequently, are available free to Law Firm Pro Bono Project Member Firms by instant download. Non-Members may also access the Resource Clearinghouse and view and purchase select documents.

For additional and timely pro bono learning and inspiration, check out “Pro Bono in Practice: Education,” which is part of the “Best of the 2015 PBI Annual Conference” webinar series.  A panel of experts discuss pressing education-related issues such as the school-to-prison pipeline, special education advocacy, and charter schools. Too many children returning to school this fall will encounter barriers to success. Learn how you can get involved and make a difference.

The webinar is available on-demand and access is free for Law Firm Pro Bono Project Member Firms. Law firm participants should contact Law Firm Pro Bono Project Assistant Eva Richardson for registration information and in-house participants should contact CPBO Project Assistant Josh Lefebvre. CLE credit is available in many jurisdictions.
