On Thursday, May 29, 2014, Jennifer Baum, Associate Professor of Clinical Legal Education and Director of the Child Advocacy Clinic, joined judges, trial lawyers, and the Chief Counsel to the Pro Se Office in training new and experienced attorneys for pro bono cases in the Southern District of New York.   This CLE program, titled Trial Advocacy Training for Pro Bono Lawyers was organized by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and the Federal Bar Council’s Public Service Committee.  The full day event was free for over 100 lawyers who agreed to accept a pro bono case within one year. Professor Baum described recent pro bono cases she has handled in federal court, and met with lawyers to discuss upcoming pro bono litigation opportunities.
