History and Heritage
THE ACC CORPORATE PRO BONO AWARD
The ACC Corporate Pro Bono Award recognizes outstanding achievement by a corporate counsel or a corporate legal department in providing pro bono legal services. ACC defines pro bono service as legal services provided to the indigent or a charitable non-profit.
Extending in-house expertise to communities in need
The strengths and talents of the in-house legal community are in high demand. Pro bono practice opportunities help to enrich communities while providing personal satisfaction to each lawyer who engages, benefiting internal corporate culture and legal department morale.
CORPORATE PRO BONO (CPBO)
Corporate Pro Bono was created as a national partnership between the ACC and the Pro Bono Institute to assist in-house counsel who want to establish or improve their legal departments' pro bono efforts. Our groundbreaking work has literally changed the face of in-house pro bono programs, creating a pro bono culture in the in-house bar that's never been seen before.
