Calling all summer interns. If you will be here in DC for the summer, the Washington Council of Lawyers Summer Pro Bono & Public Interest Forum may be an event you want to add to your calendar.
When: Thursday, June 11, from noon – 2:30 pm
Where: Arnold & Porter (555 12th Street NW).
The keynote speaker, Stephen Bright, is President and Senior Counsel at the Southern Center for Human Rights. He is a dynamic speaker and certainly someone you’ll want to hear speak. But that’s not all. The Summer Forum includes lunch, the keynote address, and the opportunity to learn more about pro bono opportunities and public interest practices in DC by attending a panel highlighting opportunities in these substantive practice areas:
Death Penalty & Criminal Law
Civil Rights & Civil Liberties
Human Rights & Immigration
Representation of Families and Children
The Summer Forum is inspirational, informative, and memorable. It also is a great way to demonstrate your support for pro bono work and DC’s public
The event routinely sells out, and early bird pricing ends on June 1 – so be
sure to get your tickets soon. Many employers sponsor their summer interns for this event, so if you’re interested, check with your organization or firm first.
