Overview (Program Summary)
Making Pro Bono Work in a Virtual World
Remote representation is here to stay and can feel even more intimidating and unique in the pro bono setting. Join the Association of Corporate Counsel National Capital Region and Washington Council of Lawyers as we invite an experienced panel of in-house volunteers and legal service coordinators who will share best practices, lessons learned and tools for success that enable pro bono volunteers to navigate all aspects of virtual client representation, including clinics, limited scope representations, and even remote court proceedings.
Erin Mee, Pro Bono Coordinating Attorney with National Veterans Legal Services Program
Darryl Maxwell, Director for the DC Bar Pro Bono Center
Kathi Westcott, Senior Director, Legal Affairs and Deputy General Counsel at Pew Charitable Trust
Moderated by: Kirsten Keating, Associate General Counsel at Freddie Mac and co-chair of ACC NCR Pro Bono Committee
The presentation will take place 12 - 1 pm ET and be followed by an online pro bono fair 1 - 2 pm ET, during which attendees will be able to select up to four break-out sessions featuring legal services organizations and in-house volunteers discussing volunteer opportunities. Registrants may attend either or both the program and fair.
