The State Bar of Georgia Access to Justice Committee presents Pro Bono Roadshow
Georgia Sports Hall of Fame Auditorium
301 Cherry Street

The one-hour Roadshow is designed to impart how lawyers can help poor and underserved communities get the legal assistance they need and come away with a high level of satisfaction from doing something about “justice for all”—all the while satisfying Georgia Rule of Professional Conduct 6.1.  The agenda includes a screening of the State Bar “Due Justice. Do 50.” campaign’s video, a group discussion with a panel of local attorneys who provide pro bono legal services, and an overview of ways to assist Macon’s Georgia Legal Services Program. 

There is no charge to attend the Roadshow.  CLE credit is pending approval; if approved, the cost to those seeking one hour of professionalism CLE credit will be $15. 

Pre-registration is not required. 

The program is co-hosted by the Macon Bar Association, Mercer Law School, Georgia Legal Services Program, and Middle Georgia Access to Justice Council.

From the boring fact that the number of transistors doubles about every two years comes two related CLE sessions. The first will address how the Supreme Court and Congress have weakened patent law at a time when innovation is (literally) exponentially increasing. The second will address the ethical issues that technology creates for our profession. In both, Professor David Hricik will explain how 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning will impact our society and our profession, and provide tips on how to prepare and adapt for the new world that is… already here.
