CPBO’s Clinic in a Box® Program – Legal Audit is an off-the-shelf model designed to create pro bono opportunities for legal departments and ACC chapters. Developed by CPBO, these half-day legal audit clinics provide in-house counsel the opportunity to advise nonprofit organizations or small businesses while earning CLE credit. The legal audit clinic covers five areas of law: governance, employment, intellectual property, real estate, and tax. They are produced in collaboration with legal departments or ACC chapters, major law firms, and local public interest organizations.
The goals of the clinic are to:
- introduce legal departments and ACC chapters to a replicable pro bono delivery model;
- encourage in-house attorneys to use their transactional legal skills to do pro bono work in their communities;
- leave in-house counsel with tools they can use to continue to provide pro bono services on their own; and
- foster closer ties among corporations, law firms, public interest groups, and their communities.
