CPBO Challenge Report

Since its founding in 2000, CPBO has worked with hundreds of legal departments and seen tremendous growth in pro bono among in-house counsel. This growth is displayed in the publication, CPBO Challenge® Report: The Development of In-House Pro Bono.


Best Practice Profiles

CPBO has recently published several best practice profiles that highlight the experiences of various legal departments and ACC Chapters. The profiles share the lessons the departments and Chapters have learned developing and sustaining in-house pro bono efforts.

These new profiles exhibit a variety of different approaches to providing rewarding pro bono. To find out more about these efforts or other approaches to creating a successful pro bono program contact CPBO for more information.
