Pro Bono Ethics webinar

Tuesday, September 29 at 4:00 PM
1.0 Hour of Missouri CLE or CPE Ethics Credit

While handling a case pro bono means a lawyer is volunteering their time, it does not mean that the representation is free from following all the ethical rules that apply to any case. Using arts-related examples, this program will address the basic ethics that any pro bono matter should follow.

A brief volunteer orientation, presented by VLAA Executive Director Sue Greenberg, will follow. Topics will include: a client overview; pro bono eligibility guidelines; referral and case management processes; and a summary of our other programs.

The program is FREE but we will be asking for a $25 donation. Please register no later than September 25 by sending an email to vlaa@vlaa.org. Be sure to include your name and firm.
