Pro Bono Partnership Project Kick-off Event

Please join us on Wednesday, October 6, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm, in Lubar Commons (7th floor in faculty tower) to learn more about the Pro Bono Partnership Project, and to meet local attorneys who participate in it.  The Keynote Speaker will be Dan LaRocque, President, Dane County Bar Association. Appetizers and refreshments will be provided.

Through the Pro Bono Partnership Project, 2Ls and 3Ls are connected with Dane County non-profit organizations and attorneys involved in civil pro bono work. The Project will seek to match students with cases consistent with their areas of interest and availability. Cases may be either referrals from local legal service organizations or existing pro bono matters for which a participating attorney seeks student assistance. Students will assist their partner organizations or attorneys up to ten hours per week and may participate for one or two semesters. Once a student is partnered with a participating lawyer on a project case, the student can arrange his or her schedule and work location with the supervising attorney.  Email Project Coordinator Henry Weiner ( with any questions
