The Forum will bring together a cross-section of pro bono stakeholders to discuss the ideas and strategies to expand and enhance pro bono in Illinois. The program will include a presentation on the results from an ABA study on pro bono conducted in many states, including Illinois, over the past year by the person who designed and oversaw the survey. The work of Harvard Law School's Access to Justice Lab, which looks to evidence-based data to transform the legal system, will also be discussed. Attendees will also engage in small group discussions to devise strategies to expand and enhance pro bono in Illinois.

3:00-4:00 Presentation (live and webcast)
4:00-5:00 Small Group Discussion (live only)
