Working Effectively With Pro Bono Clients (Video)

Atlanta Bar Association and Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation
Wednesday, April 13, 2011

The Atlanta Bar Association and Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation produced an instructional video, "Working Effectively with Pro Bono Clients," for volunteer attorneys working with pro bono clients.

The training was designed to provide practical guidance on common questions and problems, including:

  • How to establish trust and open communication with clients.
  • How to manage understandable but unrealistic client expectations.
  • How to prepare clients for court and/or mediation.
  • How to choose your venue (or whether to file at all).
  • How to negotiate or mediate effectively and ethically with unrepresented parties.
  • The basic steps to collect judgments on behalf of clients.

The full video is over four hours long, and is best viewed using a broadband connection.
