Learn innovative strategies for recruiting volunteer attorneys with limited availability and thereby increase the capacity of legal aid agencies to offer pro bono services. This session will highlight creative programs that leverage the untapped resources of primarily at-home, part-time, or retired attorneys by offering a variety of accommodations that make it easy and convenient to volunteer, such as local or online training, short-term projects that can be done in less than a few hours during the school day or online 24/7, back-up attorney support, malpractice coverage, and more. This session will also offer an interactive discussion drawing out the experience, knowledge, and needs of a variety of legal service providers.
