Join us at the Pro Bono Coordinators Retreat and the Poverty Law Conference at the Hilton Austin.
The Pro Bono Coordinators Retreat is a 1½ day training, designed to increase the quantity and quality of civil legal aid available to the low-income Texans through pro bono efforts. The annual Pro Bono Coordinators Retreat sessions are crafted for pro bono coordinators from legal aid offices, law firms, law schools, and/or corporate law departments. PBCR is designed to increase the quantity and quality of civil legal aid available to the low-income and poor Texans through pro bono efforts.
The Poverty Law Conference is held over three days and offers the latest updates in all areas of poverty law issues impacting low-income Texans and to network with others who advocate for access to justice. The annual Poverty Law Conference sessions include topics on poverty law issues affecting low-income Texans. PLC offers a multi-tracked substantive curriculum with a specific public interest focus including, but not limited to, family, housing, consumer, immigration, disaster response, and public benefits. Some of the most knowledgeable poverty law practitioners and private attorneys in their respective fields are selected as presenters for the PLC.
At this time, we do plan to offer a portion of the 2023 PBCR and PLC online; however, all tracks/sessions will not be offered online.
