Law Library to Celebrate National Pro Bono Week With Concert, Talks

A performance Thursday by Gary Greene Esq. and his Big Band of Barristers will kick off the Los Angeles Law Library’s celebration of National Pro Bono Week.

The performance will take place during a reception on the downtown library’s recent rehabilitated front plaza from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, October 23, the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law will offer a free MCLE course titled, “Family Law 101,” from 5–8 p.m. It will cover custody, domestic violence, support and property, as well as procedure and forms.

The following day, from noon until 2 p.m., there will be back-to-back programs. Southern California Pro Bono Managers will present a lunch talk on pro bono challenges by Erwin Chemerinksy, dean of the University of California at Irvine Law School, followed by a one hour ethics MCLE course on ethical concerns in connection with pro bono work, to be staged by SoCal Pro Bono Managers.

“It has been a pleasure to work in partnership with leading legal organizations throughout Los Angeles County to develop this week’s events,” LA Law Library Executive Director Marcia Koslov said. “This is a small token of appreciation for each and every individual who graciously donates their time, energy and legal expertise to our community.”
