    Doing Well and Doing Good

    Large law firms continue to increase their pro bono commitments, delivering more than 5 million hours of free legal services annually, while profits and revenue continue to grow as well. How is this possible? Steven Schulman, Pro Bono Partner at Akin Gump, will discuss why he believes that the culture, structure and economics of large firms is uniquely situated to allow pro bono to thrive. Steven has been the Pro Bono Partner for Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld since 2006. He manages the firm’s world-wide pro bono practice, which devotes more than 100,000 hours annually to a range of clients, from non-profit organizations to individuals in need of protection.
