Pro Bono Celebration
The Berks County Bar Association’s Pro Bono Program has been held up as a model in the state. Members either volunteer their time at MidPenn Legal Services, undertaking representation of indigent clients when necessary, or paying an “opt-out fee” of $550 annually. Either way, the members who volunteer or financially contribute are part of our Pro Bono Team, providing access to justice.
Each year members of the Pro Bono Team are recognized for their contributions at a special luncheon and then are offered free CLE in the afternoon with a concluding cocktail reception.
The 2013 Pro Bono Celebration is set for October 23 at the Abraham Lincoln—A Wyndham Historic Hotel.
