The Importance of Pro Bono in Your Practice

Date: Thursday, December 11, 2014 4:15 PM to 5:15 PM
Venue: Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $10.00

With Legal Aid offices in Minnesota having to turn away two out of every three eligible clients due to a lack of resources, pro bono legal representation has never been more important in Minnesota. Fortunately, new technology has made it easier than ever to incorporate pro bono into your practice. Experienced panelists will review pro bono ethical rules, needs, trends and opportunities statewide;  discuss the difference a lawyer makes from a judge’s perspective; explain how pro bono helps young attorneys get ahead and how to fit it into your busy schedule.

The section membership will meet following the CLE at 5:30.
