McIntyre Tate attorney Stephen Prignano will be presenting at the next Lunch and Learn seminar presented by the Young Lawyers Committee of the Rhode Island Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.
The free lunch seminar will center around the topic "What's in
it for Me? Ethics of Pro Bono Practice and Why You Should Get Involved."
The event is geared towards new attorneys and current law students, and
all participants will gain one Rhode Island CLE ethics credit.
Information from the official announcement is below:
"According to Rule 6.1 of the Rhode Island Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, “a lawyer should aspire to render at least fifty (50) hours of pro bono publico legal services per year.” But do you answer the call to serve? Bottom-line business concerns, billable hours, heavy workloads, and uncertainties about taking on cases may be holding you back. This CLE will demystify ethical concerns, show how to get involved and overcome perceived hurdles, and reveal the power of pro bono service to advance your community and career.
