Location: The Cincinnatian Hotel

This program has been approved for 1.0 hours of Professionalism CLE in Ohio

Lawyers have traditionally donated their time through pro bono legal work and other community service. The aspiration to serve runs deep in the legal profession, to the point that it is expressed in our professional creed. Many lawyers desire to serve others in one way or another, but are challenged with finding the time and the best way to make an impact. The program will include a discussion of a lawyer’s calling to community service, the role of the lawyer in the community, and whether community service for lawyers should relate to legal issues. We will also discuss various projects and organizations seeking community service volunteers, and we will hear from one organization, Dress For Success (DfSC), regarding how one might get involved with their organization.

CincyIP would also like to take this opportunity to ask our members to give back to those that are less fortunate through Dress for Success during this holiday season. We will be accepting donations at our monthly meeting. For additional information, including alternate donation drop-off times and locations and details for donating, please visit our website.
