Description:

The Government and Public Sector Lawyers Division and the ABA's Center for Pro Bono have produced "Pro Bono Project Development: A Deskbook for Government and Public Sector Lawyers" to: (1) encourage greater public lawyer participation in pro bono, and (2) assist public law offices and already existing pro bono programs to create effective policies and projects. The manual guides managing attorneys, pro bono practitioners, and project coordinators through the issues that impact public lawyer pro bono projects. The manual includes many examples of federal, state, and local policies and procedures that will provide the foundation for successful projects. The Division also has a Pro Bono Committee chaired by Daniel Collopy.
