ACC urges New York Court of Appeals to expand pro bono practice by in-house counsel

After working with Judge Graffeo of the New York Court of Appeals and leaders of our New York Chapters as a part of a working group on in-house counsel issues, ACC and 38 New York CLOs have filed a letter in support of the effort to expand pro bono practice by in-house counsel.  That letter, linked here, argues that in-house counsel should not need to associate with a legal services provider or to be supervised by a New York bar member in order to provide services to those in need.  We expect a final decision before the end of the year.
