Pro Bono Opportunities Day 2008
All attorneys are invited to attend Philadelphia VIP‘s signature training seminar on Wednesday October 22, 2008 from 8:30 am to 12:15 pm at Montgomery McCracken Walker and Rhoads, LLP. From first year associates new to the practice of law to those with many years of experience, attorneys will learn how to use their legal experience to help those most in need in our community.
Training sessions for the day are available to professionals from all areas of practice and include probate procedures, name change and birth certificate amendments, consumer cases and legal wills. Following the training event, VIP offers each participant the opportunity to take a pro bono case, and each attorney who attends the seminar and accepts a case will earn two (2) substantice CLE credits. The cost of the training is $45 per attendee with breakfast and educational materials provided. The deadline for registration is Monday, October 13, 2008.
Through the efforts of pro bono volunteers, Philadelphia VIP is able to provide equal access to the legal system for low-income Philadelphians and serve more than 1100 individuals and families every year who are unable to afford legal representation.
