Paul, Weiss to Implement Pro Bono Manager

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is the latest firm to purchase Pro Bono Netís Pro Bono Manager for management and reporting related to its pro bono efforts.

Paul Weiss joins a growing roster of law firms using Pro Bono Manager, including Ropes & Gray; Kirkland & Ellis; Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll; Debevoise & Plimpton; Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe; Linklaters; Manatt, Phelps & Phillips; and Weil, Gotshal & Manges.  Pro Bono Net will be demonstrating Pro Bono Manager at LegalTech Feb. 1-3 in Booth 1619.

Pro Bono Manager helps law firms increase pro bono participation, manage pro bono caseloads more efficiently and raise internal and external awareness of pro bono efforts.  A 2009 case study done by Microsoft illustrated how Pro Bono Manager streamlines management and reporting, thus allowing more time for higher-value work, and contributing to the growth of the firmís pro bono program.

"We look forward to incorporating the Pro Bono Manager tool into our dynamic program, as it will allow us to leverage additional opportunities and resources to enhance our existing efforts," said Michele Hirshman, Chair of Paul, Weiss's Public Matters Committee. "Paul, Weiss has always placed a high priority on its pro bono commitment, and this program will help us to provide even greater value to a pro bono community that is very much in need."

Paul Weiss has a strong commitment to pro bono, and has helped establish law and public policy concerning, among other areas, civil rights, women's rights, prisoners' rights, voting rights, rights of asylum, rights of the disabled and minority rights.

Pro Bono Manager is built on Microsoftís SharePoint 2007 and SQL Reporting Services, and was developed in partnership with XMLaw.  For more information, contact Adam Licht at
