We invite you to a very special Pro Bono luncheon on Tuesday, June 5, 2018. Learn about federal pro bono opportunities available to our practitioners through the different pro bono programs in our district, circuit, and bankruptcy courts.  Hear from some of our Central District judges about opportunities for attorney involvement, as well as from representatives of the Public Law Center, Legal Aid Society (LASOC) and Veterans Legal Institute (VLI) and attorney volunteers themselves.

We very much hope you will be able to join us.
