Community Lawyering for Environmental Justice Part 3: Conflict Checks

September 27, 2022 12:00 pm — 1:30 pm
Webinar only

An Environmental Law Institute Public Webinar

Join the Environmental Law Institute and the Pro Bono Clearinghouse for the third part of our CLE series centered around community lawyering for environmental justice. ELI’s Clearinghouse strives to ensure that communities with viable environmental legal matters get the representation they need, whether that be in a courtroom, in front of an agency, or in a more facilitative or consultative fashion. The Clearinghouse connects environmental law clinics with the many hundreds of environmental law members at ELI and at various collaborating organizations.

This part of the series will focus on conflict checks and the process for taking on a matter through the ELI Pro Bono Clearinghouse. Conflict checks are an integral preliminary step to taking on a new case. How does the process work, and how does it differ between fields? What should attorneys do before taking on a case at the Pro Bono Clearinghouse? Join ELI and expert panelists to discuss conflict checks and how to manage them at law firms, the federal government, nonprofits, clinics, and more.
