Lash to Speak at the 2009 Pro Bono Institute Annual SeminarMarch 5-7, 2009
O’Melveny counsel David Lash will speak at the 2009 Pro Bono Institute Annual Seminar and Forum on In-House Corporate Pro Bono: Transforming Pro Bono in a Changing World on March 5-7 in Washington, DC.
The Pro Bono Institute Annual Seminar is the legal profession’s premier global pro bono conference specifically tailored to the interests, needs, and issues faced by law firms involved in pro bono programs, and the legal services organization with whom they represent.
Lash will speak on “Transforming Your Pro Bono Program,” addressing how at a time of institutional change and economic uncertainty, making the most of the extraordinary skills and human capital available through the pro bono efforts of major law firms is more critical than ever – for law firms themselves as well as nonprofit groups and their clients who desperately need legal assistance.
Additionally, Lash will make a presentation about the Skid Row Collaborative, an innovative project in which O’Melveny, and several other firms, are staffing the first-ever pro bono legal clinic focused on the legal problems of the homeless residents of Skid Row.
In conjunction with the Annual Seminar, O'Melveny's DC office will host the annual meeting of the Association of Pro Bono Counsel ("APBCo") on the evening of March 5 which over 60 registrants are anticipated to attend. APBCo is a unique new organization comprised of pro bono professionals from major firms across the country. As part of the programming for that meeting, Lash will be speaking on "Convening Unlikely Partners to Tackle Access to Justice Issues."
