The Prince George’s County Bar Association, the Administrative Offices of the Courts, and the Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland are sponsoring a Pro Bono Legal Services Fair for Maryland lawyers on Friday, September 28, 2008, at the UMUC Inn and Conference Center by Marriott, 3501 University Blvd., East, Adelphi, MD 20783. For those of you who want to do good and still get paid, a CLE is being held in Room 1123, at 5:00-6:00 called “Just Because It’s Pro Bono Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Get Paid.” (Don’t you feel John Edwards might roll in the door for that topic?)
The keynote speaker for the pro bono fair is Robert M. Bell who, of course, is the Chief Judge of the Maryland Court of Appeals. Panel members are Jo Benson Fogel, Orlando Barnes, Barbara Jorgenson, Peter Holland, Philip Robinson. The moderator is Judge Cathy Hollenberg-Serrette.
