For many lawyers, giving back to those in need is more than just a duty – it is a goal, or even a passion. Unfortunately, the demands of the workplace often hinder in-house attorneys from taking on meaningful pro bono projects, even as corporate social responsibility (CSR) is increasingly emphasized at those workplaces. This program will demonstrate various ways in-house legal departments are teaming up with leading pro bono organizations and with their outside law firms on innovative outreach efforts that leverage their shared values while also providing much-needed services in their communities.
