IN-HOUSE COUNSEL...BE EXTRAORDINARY!
PROVIDE A HELPFUL HAND...WE NEED YOUR HELP!
PRESENTING...THE ACC ONTARIO PRO BONO HONOUR ROLL
Join ACC Ontario's effort to provide pro bono opportunities for every in-house counsel. Let's provide a helpful hand and give back to those who need it. The ACC Ontario Pro Bono Honour Roll recognizes in-house counsel who have accepted the pro bono imperative by providing their pro bono services through the Pro Bono Ontario.

CALLING ALL IN-HOUSE COUNSEL:
Join us for ACC Ontario Pro Bono Week. In-house counsel will volunteer at Pro Bono Ontario's Free Legal Advice Hotline to provide free summary legal advice to low-income Ontarians seeking help with their legal problems.
This is your opportunity to provide insight and direction to people facing seemingly intractable problems and bring them the peace of mind and economic security they need. As lawyers, this is an opportunity for us to increase access to justice and discharge our ethical obligations.
The Hotline addresses civil, non-family legal issues and PBO needs litigation and employment lawyers in addition to corporate lawyers to step forward. Since the Hotline provides excellent networking opporunities, we invite you to ask your external counsel to join you if they can.
This event is free of charge and open to both in-house and outside counsel but you must RSVP to attend. Please RSVP for this event by no later than Friday, February 9, 2018. Space is limited.
For any questions about this event, please email us.
