Pro Bono Advisory Council

 
In 2004, NYLPI launched the Pro Bono Advisory Council (PBAC), bringing together a group of emerging leaders dedicated to enhancing the public service commitment of the legal profession. The group has flourished, attracting talented attorneys from New York City’s most prominent law firms and corporations who serve as dedicated ambassadors for our mission. PBAC members play a vital role in promoting and supporting NYLPI by actively engaging their peers about the importance of pro bono and serving as sponsors for a series of events throughout the year on topics related to public interest work. Members gain the opportunity to develop valuable leadership skills and to work with other lawyers who are committed to serving the needs of our community.
