The Trial of Salim Ahmed Hamdan: Pro Bono Legal Services

Thursday, May 22, 2014
8:00 - 9:30 AM

Providing great value to our communities, pro bono legal services can be a significant part of a law firm's offering. Join us and hear from Harry Schneider and learn from his experience with a high profile pro bono case he argued in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

How can law firms make a difference through pro bono activities? Attend this inspiring session and learn more.

Note: The Foundation of ALA recently launched a partnership with the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) to offer paid ALA membership to individuals working in legal management positions in a non-profit organization providing legal services to the working poor. This will provide a segment of our profession — those who serve the working poor and do not have funds to cover ALA membership fees — with the valuable resources, networking and education they need to enhance their professional development. The project also provides our members another opportunity to participate in pro bono activities.
