On March 20, 2012, I joined Tracy Child, Esq. of Riker, Danzig, Scherer, Hyland & Perretti LLP in presenting “Legal Issues in the Review of Non-Profit Websites” as a teleconference for the Pro Bono Partnership. Website legal review is important for all businesses, whether for-profit or non-profit, from the website development stage through ongoing maintenance. If you are not familiar with the Pro Bono Partnership, here is a little more about them:
“The Pro Bono Partnership provides business and transactional legal services to nonprofit organizations serving the disadvantaged and enhancing the quality of life in neighborhoods in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Substantially leveraging the impact of our in-house legal staff, the Partnership annually recruits and mobilizes hundreds of attorneys from major corporations and law firms to donate their time and expertise on behalf of its nonprofit clients, enhancing their ability to improve conditions in their communities, particularly for the poor and vulnerable.
Since its founding in 1997, the Partnership has assisted more than 1,600 nonprofit organizations on thousands of legal matters, enabling them to more effectively feed the hungry, house the homeless, promote the arts, protect the environment and provide essential programs to children, the elderly, immigrants, the disabled and the unemployed.”
They are a wonderful organization with a great team. If you are an attorney, I strongly encourage you to check out the Pro Bono Partnership website and see if there are any volunteer opportunities that match your areas of expertise.
