Event Details

For attorneys, performing pro bono service can be a rewarding way to serve the community while meeting the pro bono recommendations of Rule 6.1 of the Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct. While many ethical issues that arise in the context of pro bono service mirror those in a lawyer’s day-to-day practice, there are some special issues that an attorney should consider when engaging in pro bono service. This free ethics CLE will discuss the common issues that attorneys may encounter when undertaking pro bono representation, including conflict checks, client capacity, and communication difficulties. Furthermore, there will be a presentation on JusticeServer, the revolutionary online tool that connects pro bono need with the volunteer attorney community.

Speakers:
Leslie Haley, Esq., Haley Law, PLC
Alexandra Silva Fannon, Esq., Executive Director, Greater Richmond Bar Foundation

Approved for 1.5 CLE credits (1.0 ethics)
