Please join us on the Zoom platform for our ACC-SFBA employment law consultation for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. This event is presented by Cozen O'Connor and organized in conjunction with the Justice & Diversity Center of the Bar Association of San Francisco (JDC).

FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 2024

The afternoon will consist of:

12:00pm: Lunch Delivery & Introductions
12:15 - 1:45pm: Volunteer Training (CLE #1: 1.5 hours California Credit)
1:45 - 2:00pm: Breakout Room Prep Time for Volunteers
2:00 - 2:15pm: Non-Profit Introductions

4:00 - 4:15pm: Break
4:15 - 5:15pm: "Hard to Get" CLE Happy Hour (CLE #2: 1.0 hour California Credit)

The event starts with a virtual CLE training session entitled "Employment Law Legal Audit for Nonprofit Organizations", by Cozen O’Connor, to update ACC members on employment law in California. Next, members will be placed into small teams (with one or two other attorneys) to meet with their assigned nonprofit clients. Teams will have a couple hours to help their clients identify employment law issues and to counsel their clients. Cozen O'Connor employment attorneys will be standing by to assist with challenging questions.

All ACC members are welcome, regardless of your level of experience - you do not have to be an employment attorney to participate, and you are not required to provide pro bono services to your assigned clients after this event. You must be barred in the State of California for insurance purposes.

Examples of the types of non-profits these events have helped in the past include:

  • An organization that empowers young mothers to complete their high school and post-secondary education and nurtures their children’s development
  • An organization that supported low-income families during the pandemic by distributing packages of education essentials
  • An organization that works on behalf of low-income immigrants and refugees through advocacy, education, legal services, and other community-based services

We will close the day with the "Hard to Get" MCLE Happy Hour.  Cozen O'Connor will host a wine & cheese reception at your desk and offer a NEW "Hard to Get" MCLE, Civility in the Legal Profession.
