Concordia’s Law School To Represent Idaho At The ‘National Pro Bono Week’



10/31/2015

Annual National Pro Bono Week will be hosted by the Concordia University of Law.


Dailycsr.com – 31 October 2015 – The University School of Law at Concordia has received the honour of representing Idaho. The University will portray itself as “an official site” for the American Bar Association in its seventh “Annual National Pro Bono Week”.
 
This will also be well in line with Concordia University School of Law’s commitment towards supporting the “underserved populations” whereby appeal for justice on their behalf.
 
The Dean of Concordia University School of Law, Cathy Silak states:
“We need to continue working together to build a legal system that ensures justice for all. Service leadership continues to be a hallmark of the Concordia Law experience.”
 
Besides, the “Concordia Law students completing” each fifty hours of “law-related public service”, the University also engages itself with “more than a dozen nonprofit partners”. The complete review on the subject along with “Concordia Law’s pro bono efforts and partners” can be availed at:
