Many lawyers well into their careers or in retirement seek to utilize their talents in public service, but how do you find the right fit? What’s involved in the work and what support will you receive? Are there opportunities for limited compensation? A number of groups seeking experienced lawyers for pro bono or public service involvement will meet with interested lawyers after the program.
