"REPRESENTING PRO BONO CLIENTS IN
FEDERAL COURT (PART 1)

8 A.M. - 1 P.M.
1144 15th Street, Suite 3400, Denver
(Offices of Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath, LLP)

There is no charge for this CLE but registration is required.

Why take a U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado Civil Pro Bono Panel case?  And how do you take such a case?  This half-day seminar will cover the many great reasons for taking U.S. District Court (Colorado) Civil Pro Bono Panel cases and how to do so effectively.  It also will cover two of the most common types of cases available through the panel – claims based on employment and civil rights laws.  Attendees will hear from local attorneys who are leaders in these fields and from attorneys who have successfully litigated Civil Pro Bono Panel cases through trials and settlements.  Attorneys newer to practicing in Colorado should benefit greatly from attending and participating in the USDC Civil Pro Bono Panel.  Lastly, note that the FFA plans to host a follow-up seminar later in the year to address the litigation of prisoners’ rights cases that frequently are available through the U.S. District Court (Colorado) Civil Pro Bono Panel.
