Winston & Strawn*†’s Greg McConnell speaks with PBI on this week’s Pro Bono Happy Hour podcast about his career path, leading a mission-driven pro bono program, and how he and his team use a “seven-second” rule to get the attention of busy attorneys. Greg describes the satisfying double-boost of serving both pro bono clients and attorneys and how he and his team make it as easy as possible at the firm to do pro bono. He discusses the firm’s recently-created Corporate Social Responsibility Officer position and the professionalization of law firm pro bono. Take 40 minutes to listen to part one of our conversation with Greg. Don’t forget to tune in again on Thursday to catch the conclusion of our conversation.
