Chief Legal Officers shared perspectives on pro bono for the 10th Anniversary of the CPBO Challenge® initiative. To read more quotes from the 2016 celebrations check out our slideshow from PBI’s Annual Dinner.
“We are privileged to be members of this extraordinary legal profession, and we must never forget what inspired us to join it— the opportunity to help others in need. In no group is that more important than for those who can’t help themselves…(.) We must be there to provide legal services, not just because it makes us feel good about ourselves, but also because it’s the right thing to do.”
EVP, Chief Administrative Officer, General Counsel and Secretary
