Pro Bono Week 2018: How to Build a Pro Bono Practice in a Large Firm

October 25, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

HLS’s Assistant Dean for Admission Kristi Jobson (JD ’12) will facilitate a conversation with other HLS alumni, law firm leaders and associates, about where pro bono work fits into their practice. The participants will discuss a wide range of questions including how they prioritize both their paying work and their pro bono work. How do associates get involved in their pro bono work and how firms provide opportunities for participation? What do these attorneys love about their pro bono work and what is challenging about it? Where does pro bono work fit into a law firm’s business model? Come be a part of this important conversation as you think about building your own legal careers.

Featuring:
Susan M. Finegan, Pro Bono Partner, Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C.
Victoria Hartmann, Associate, WilmerHale (JD ’17)
William Roberts, Associate, Ropes & Gray LLP (JD ’10)

Co-sponsored by the Harvard Women’s Law Association.
