Pro bono work provides lawyers with opportunities to give back to the community, but there are other, less-recognized career benefits that stem from pro bono work. Pro bono work provides the opportunity for newer lawyers to gain experience, confidence, connections, and visibility both inside and outside their firms. For more experienced attorneys, pro bono work gives you the opportunity to gain greater visibility was well as case-management and leadership skills.

For all these reasons, and more, pro bono work is an essential part of your career development. The panel will help you discover litigation and transactional pro bono and training opportunities, careers in public interest work, and the hard to gain skills pro bono service provides.
