Check out these Pro Bono Opportunities!

GREAT NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY!!! Shutts and Bowen is hosting a reception on May 17th at Shutts’ offices to promote, explain, and recruit for Project H.E.L.P. If you would have any interest, this reception is a great time to come and learn more. In addition to learning more about this fantastice Homeless Advocacy program, you would get to see Shutts’ offices, and network with practicing lawyers and judges at a cocktail reception. Summer is a great time to volunteer when school is out, and since the clinic is from 6 pm on, it should not interfere with most internships. If you’re interested, please RSVP to Ella Shenhav at Eshenhav@shutts.com
