Mintz Levin will be hosting Corporate Pro Bono's 'Clinic in a Box Program', which is co-sponsored by Corporate Pro Bono, Northeast ACC Chapter, Lawyers Clearinghouse and Mintz Levin.
CPBO’s Clinic in a Box program is an off-the-shelf model designed to create pro bono opportunities for legal departments and ACC chapters. Developed by CPBO, these half-day legal audit clinics provide in-house counsel the opportunity to advise nonprofit organizations or small businesses while earning CLE credit. They are produced in collaboration with legal departments or ACC Chapters, major law firms, and local public interest organizations.
The goals of the Clinics are to:
- introduce legal departments and ACC chapters to a replicable pro bono delivery model;
- encourage in-house attorneys to use their transactional legal skills to do pro bono work in their communities;
- leave in-house counsel with tools they can use to continue to provide pro bono services on their own; and
- foster closer ties among corporations, law firms, public interest groups, and their communities.
