Pro Bono Training and Events

  • Poverty Law Conference (and Pro Bono Coordinators Retreat Pre-Conference)

    This annual training event includes a 1 1/2 day PBCR preconference for pro bono coordinators from legal aid offices, law firms, law schools, or corporate law departments and is designed to increase the quantity and quality of legal services available to the poor through pro bono efforts. The PLC is a three-day training on poverty law issues affecting low-income and poor Texans.

  • Task Forces

    The LAD provides logistical support to six legal aid task forces. Task force meetings offer legal aid attorneys and advocates the opportunity to meet with others practicing in the same substantive area while staying informed on changes in the law. Agenda topics are set by the task force chair, and most meetings qualify for MCLE accreditation. The following legal services task forces are supported by the LAD:

    • Education and Juvenile Justice Task Force

    • Employment Law Task Force

    • Family Law Task Force

    • Housing/Consumer Task Force

    • Immigration Task Force

    • Public Benefits/Health Law Task Force
