Let’s Take a Deep Breath of Fresh Air

- ABA Center for Pro Bono Exchange
The ABA and the NLADA invite us to take a deep breath of fresh air in beautiful Jacksonville, Florida. We all know too well the plight of the poor and the challenges they face daily. We are on the front line doing our best to improve legal services by being more efficient, recruiting more volunteers, and utilizing current tools more efficiently. At the same time, we’re all being asked to do more with less. In these times the Equal Justice Conference (EJC) is a breath of fresh air. The ABA and the NLADA have put together a line up of dozens of workshops and networking opportunities to educate and rejuvenate us and I am privileged to be one of many who are excited about welcoming you to Jacksonville, Florida for this great event!
During the conference, your local EJC Host Committee invites you to visit the Host Committee’s and Florida Pro Bono Coordinators Association’s “Welcome!” table in the vendor fair. Here you will be able to pick up information about our statewide “One” Campaign to encourage pro bono service and “One” Campaign treats (limited supply so come early). Your local EJC Host Committee, along with The Jacksonville Bar Association, invite you to the annual “Paws and Laws” party at the Jaguars stadium, Everbank Field, West Club. From 5:30 – 11:00. The event will include a reception and wine tasting, presentation by the NFL Jaguars, dinner, open bar, casino night, and live music. Shuttles will transport you to and from the Hyatt.
