Vice President Joe Biden expressed his support for law firm pro bono programs during a meeting this month with representatives from more than a dozen firms.

Representatives from 15 law firms—members of the Board of Directors of the Association of Pro Bono Counsel—briefed the vice president on a variety of pro bono initiatives, including programs focused on domestic violence, providing legal advice to small businesses, immigration and homeless youth.
According to the association, Biden said he supported firms’ efforts to institutionalize pro bono by hiring full-time professionals to oversee pro bono efforts.
“The Vice President reiterated his enthusiasm for APBCo’s mission and recognized the critical role of law firm pro bono programs in bringing much needed services to the poor,” the association said in a press release about the June 5 meeting.

The meeting was attended by representatives from Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, Brown Rudnick, Crowell & Moring, Cooley, Dentons, Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson, Kaye Scholer, McDermott Will & Emery, O’Melveny & Myers, Pepper Hamilton, Seyfarth Shaw, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, and Vinson & Elkins.
