    Join us as a panel of deans discuss why they prioritize public service, pro bono, and other social justice initiatives at their law schools. The panel will discuss the essential ingredients needed to build a strong culture of service within law schools and the ways they support (financially and otherwise) the costs of pro bono and public service when budgets are tight. How do service-oriented programs support admissions, curricular, career planning, and alumni relations efforts? How can law schools respond to the access to justice crisis? This will be an engaging discussion for deans and pro bono program managers alike. The Section on Pro Bono & Public Service Opportunities will be holding a joint award ceremony with Leadership, Professional Responsibility, and Women in Legal Education on Saturday, January 8th at 2:00 - 3:00 pm Eastern.
