An ELI Public Webinar
Community lawyering, also known as empowerment lawyering, is key to meaningful environmental pro bono work. At the same time, it differs from the more traditional representational lawyering with which many attorneys are familiar. At a fundamental level, rather than receiving payment from a client to work as an evaluative attorney, community lawyers collaborate with community members as unpaid, facilitative partners.
Join our expert panelists for an in-depth discussion around the concept and practice of community and empowerment lawyering. This panel will provide environmental attorneys with the skills and knowledge they need to engage in meaningful pro bono work and to provide appropriate, effective support to communities in these types of matters.
