Pro Bono

DLA Piper Program Will Assign Two New Associates to Pro Bono Work Only

DLA Piper will select two new associates each year to work exclusively on pro bono matters in a new fellowship program announced on Monday.

The associates will receive the usual pay—ranging from $145,000 to $160,000, depending on the region—to do pro bono work for their first year at the law firm, the Am Law Daily reports.

The program is a tribute to recently retired partner Sheldon Krantz, who served as director of the firm’s global pro bono affiliate called New Perimeter, according to a press release. New Perimeter addresses issues such as law reform, human rights and legal education in developing and post-conflict countries.

The associates will work on DLA’s pro bono projects in the United States and on New Perimeter projects throughout the world.
