Upcoming Events Featuring Legal Aid’s Jodi Feldman
Jodi Feldman, the Director of Legal Aid’s Pro Bono and Intake Programs, will be making public appearances at two upcoming events.
First, as a part of Pro Bono Week, Jodi will be participating on a panel discussing the current approaches to providing free and reduced-cost legal services to be held on Thursday, October 25. The discussion will consider mandatory pro bono programs in law schools, the New York pro bono bar requirements, and new and innovative approaches to providing legal services. The event, held at American University Washington College of Law and sponsored by the Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law and the Law School’s Office of Public Interest, is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
Second, on Wednesday, November 14, Jodi will be serving as one of two facilitators discussing “Best Practices in Pro Bono: Building Effective Pro Bono Relationships,” at an event sponsored by the Washington Council of Lawyers and hosted by Fried, Frank, Harris Shriver & Jacobson LLP (801 17th Street, NW). This panel, focused on “Getting Started,” is the first in a series of events aimed at improving and expanding pro bono legal opportunities in the District. This event is also free and open to the public, and you can register for it here.
