POLLAK CHAIRS PRO BONO NET
Congrats to Bill Pollak, ALM president and CEO, who has been elected chair of the Pro Bono Net board of directors.
Pro Bono Net is a New York City-based nonprofit organization that focuses on using technology programs (including web-based programs) to empower legal advocates and help them better serve the underrepresented. It provides assistance directly to the public (via LawHelpInteractive), as well as helps legal organizations manage pro bono activities (Pro Bono Manager). See Pam Weisz' story in the January 2010 issue of LTN.
Executive Director Mark O'Brien cited Pollak's "talents and experience, knowledge of the legal market, and commitment to the cause of access to justice" as strong assets for the leadership post he has assumed.
Pollak joined ALM in 1998, and has served on the PBN board since 2000. He succeeds the organization's founding chair, Michael Cooper, of Sullivan and Cromwell (who remains on the board).
