Beyond the Need: What’s New in the 23rd Circuit & Pro Bono Practice Virtual CLE

During this virtual CLE, we will go beyond discussing the need for pro bono to how you are an integral part of filling that need and giving you the tools to do so. We’ll introduce new efforts within the last few months to expand and enhance pro bono in the 23rd circuit, review ethical considerations in providing pro bono legal services, and explore a variety of ways in which you can help those in need.


  • Honorable Joseph Pedersen, DeKalb County, Co-chair of the Twenty-Third Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee
  • Paula Rieghns, Law Office of Paula Rieghns, Ltd. 
  • Jessica Schneider, Managing Attorney with the Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI)
