  • Experiences of attorneys working from various perspectives -- an in-house corporate attorney, Pro Bono Counsel for an AmLaw 100 firm, and the Corporate Engagement Counsel for a nonprofit that regularly works with in-house counsel
  • Best practices for overcoming challenges of in-house counsel pro bono engagement, such as subject-matter and time constraints
  • A brief overview of resources available to in-house counsel for finding and engaging in pro bono work

All in-house counsel interested in pro bono are encouraged to attend, as are law firm attorneys and nonprofit attorneys who partner or are interested in partnering with in-house counsel on pro bono matters.
