VIP Summer Pro Bono Day June 7

The 18th Annual Philadelphia VIP Summer Pro Bono Day will be Friday, June 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Bar Institute on the 10th floor of the Wanamaker Building, Market and Juniper streets.

The event is geared specifically to law students at the inception of their careers to educate them about issues of poverty in Philadelphia and to promote an ethic of service to address those issues through pro bono work. Students will first be joined by judges from the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania who will be present to discuss the importance of pro bono service. Students will learn about poverty in Philadelphia and be introduced to resources available to help provide legal services not otherwise available to the neediest Philadelphians.

VIP clients and volunteer attorneys will also present their stories, affording students the opportunity to see the effects of providing legal assistance. It is our hope that by attending, students will gain a heightened appreciation for pro bono service in our community and experience legal justice in action. Law students can register by clicking here.
