2016 marked the 10th anniversary of the CPBO Challenge® initiative. Launched when formalized in-house pro bono programs were still a new concept, the CPBO Challenge® initiative sets an aspirational goal that encourages in-house legal departments to engage in pro bono legal services and benchmark their performance from year to year. Click through the timeline below to see the progress of the initiative over the years.
CPBO and PBI honored this important milestone in a variety of ways throughout the year to heighten awareness of the great work in-house legal departments have done and to encourage more departments, as well as others in the legal community, to engage their legal staff in pro bono legal services.
