If you don't have a local project that engages the private bar or you are thinking about new ways to recruit volunteer attorneys or you just want to hear about some of the best models around the country to inspire some new projects (including law firm and in-house partnerships), this teleconference will be an opportunity to hear from some folks who work with some best practice models.
