Corporate Pro Bono (CPBO), the in-house project of Pro Bono Institute, would like to invite your legal department to join the 191 legal departments who have declared their commitment to support access to justice by becoming a signatory to the Corporate Pro Bono Challenge® initiative.

The CPBO Challenge® initiative sets the industry benchmark for in-house pro bono participation. It encourages and promotes pro bono service throughout a company’s legal department using a metric that is both easy to track and meaningful to in-house departments – the aspirational goal of at least 50 percent pro bono participation by attorneys and legal staff.

To learn more about the Challenge, please review the FAQs and sign-up form or email us at cpbo@proboninst.org.
