How did we add over 100 posts to InhouseBlog without writing anything about pro bono opportunities for corporate counsel? We’re not sure either – but we are going to take steps to remedy the situation starting today. We’ve added a "Pro Bono" category to our site and are happy to report on a way you can get started with helping others:
Corporate Pro Bono (CPBO), a national outreach project co-sponsored by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) and the Pro Bono Institute (PBI), is the premier resource for in-house corporate counsel seeking to do pro bono. Through online services, technical assistance to the in-house community, and educational outreach, CPBO encourages and supports the participation of in-house counsel in pro bono legal services. Their services are free of charge, and they work with legal departments of varying sizes and concentrations.
