Next week, Harvard Law School is celebrating National Pro Bono Week. This celebration honors the outstanding work of lawyers who volunteer their time to help people in their communities and increase justice for all. The week will feature discussions with attorneys who are leading pro bono and public interest initiatives in the public and private sector.
The American Bar Association launched this initiative to increase awareness of the growing need for pro bono services and to highlight the positive impact that lawyers make in their communities across the United States and in the lives of the clients they serve.
The Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs invites you to attend the following events being held at:
