Pro Bono Jeopardy - Navigating Pro Bono Opportunities during the COVID Pandemic

Event Description

Deadline to Register:  October 23, 2020

There are many pro bono programs available in Minnesota. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out the best fit for you. This session will present pro bono opportunities in a familiar game show format, to freshen up how you find the right match.  We’ll highlight what’s available based on how much time you want to spend and what skills you want to use or develop. Are you someone who loves litigation but only has a few hours? You’ll find out what programs need lawyers to go to court for regularly scheduled, limited scope representation. Maybe you prefer research and want to contribute to a longer term project; you’ll learn how to put those skills to good use. In addition to hearing from a few programs, you’ll see a list of opportunities from many organizations highlighting time and skills needed. It’s a fresh way to see all the great ways you can use your legal skills to make a difference.
