PBRC Litigation Skills Lunch & Learn Series

HOW DOES IT WORK?

LIVE skill- and community-building series for attorneys who have recently trained with Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland (PBRC):

Each meeting runs from noon to 3 pm on a Friday, and includes three components: a 50-minute skills training; a 50-minute exercise; and a 50-minute mentoring roundtable, where attendees can bring up litigation questions they’re currently facing (whether related to the presentation topic or not), and get input from the group.

Experienced litigators will be present during the entire event, and a light lunch will be provided.

Participation is open to attorneys who have already accepted a pro bono commitment through a PBRC training within the past 12 months OR who commit to answer at least three legal questions for low-income Marylanders, using the https://Maryland.FreeLegalAnswers.org website.  (Instructions will  be provided.)

If you have not accepted a pro bono commitment through a PBRC training within the past 12 months, and would still like to participate, you can simply choose the option to commit to answering at least three legal questions for low-income Marylanders, using the https://Maryland.FreeLegalAnswers.org website; OR you can visit www.probonomd.org/training to accept a pro bono commitment through a PBRC training. Opportunities are statewide and through a myriad of legal services organizations.

The skills training portion of each event will be made available as an on-demand webcast recording.
