Pro Bono Celebration 2011
The Columbus Bar Association and Foundation's Annual Pro Bono Celebration took place on Thursday, October 27, 5:00pm at the Columbus Bar offices. The Foundation and the Columbus Bar Association have jointly funded the administration of the pro bono program since 1992. Over the years our volunteer lawyers have provided free assistance to thousands of people and have generously made donations to support our efforts.
The Columbus Bar pro bono program continues to work in partnership with the Legal Aid Society of Columbus, garnering more volunteers and evolving to be more responsive to the needs of the community in this time of great need. The keynote speaker for the Pro Bono Celebration was Supreme Court of Ohio Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor.
