For the Public Good: Sharpening Your Skills Through Pro Bono Practice

$30 for MBA members | $50 non-members

The term “pro bono” comes from the Latin phrase “pro bono publico,” which means “for the public good.” While we all share a professional commitment to pro bono practice, taking on a pro bono case can also sharpen your litigation and advocacy skills, which benefits your practice overall. This CLE is for civil litigators of all experience levels. It will cover how lawyers can get involved in pro bono work; the variety of opportunities available; and how to balance pro bono work with your existing practice. Our esteemed panel of speakers includes; Robert Koch, Appellate Practice Group Chair, Tonkon Torp LLP; Meg Houlihan, Stoll Berne, Sadie Concepción, CLiF Project at Tonkon Torp LLP; Jollee Patterson, Partner, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP; Jill Mallery, Pro Bono Coordinator, Legal Aid Services of Oregon; and Amanda Caffall, Executive Director, The Commons Law Center. The Honorable Stacie F. Beckerman, US District Magistrate Judge, will moderate our panel of experts.
