Cleary Gottlieb pro bono attorney Katherine Hughes was a speaker at the Pro Bono Institute 2019 Conference.

She participated in the session titled, 100% Pro Bono Time, which explored the following topics:

  • A number of firms have created positions or teams of attorneys who spend all of their time specializing and working on substantive pro bono matters. Is this movement toward full-time pro bono practitioners a trend?
  • What are the opportunities, benefits, costs, and practical challenges of hiring dedicated pro bono lawyers?
