Pro Bono

It’s LEAPS Pro Bono Week at BC Law!

Thank you to all who have joined us for LEAPS Pro Bono Week! There is still one last program to participate in hosted by Mintz. Please see below for details and join us. Please also feel free to review the recordings from earlier this week.

UPCOMING: Pro Bono in the Private Sector
Thursday, October 29th, 12-1pm ET, Webex Meeting
Join Mintz to find out about making pro bono part of your regular practice working in the private sector. Sue Finegan, BC Law alum and Mintz Pro Bono Partner, will lead the discussion along with four BC Law alums and Mintz associates. Hear about the critical work private sector attorneys do to advance access to justice and how they balance this important part of their practice with their other obligations working at a large firm. You’ll also hear what it’s like to work at Mintz from the perspective of Mintz associates.
