Upcoming Attorney Trainings
Volunteer Attorney Information Session
Friday, March 8, 2019
9:30 am - 10:30 am
Location: Casa Cornelia Law Center, 2760 Fifth Avenue, Suite 200, San Diego, CA 92103
The Information Session is not an MCLE event, but rather an informal discussion over coffee where we can address attorney questions about current events, recent policy changes and pro bono all at once in a group setting. We will discuss the types of volunteer opportunities available, and what might be the best fit. Questions are welcome!
This session is reserved for licensed attorneys. Space is limited, so kindly RSVP to Pro Bono Program Assistant Rosa Vargas at RVargas@CasaCornelia.org.
