The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program hosts training sessions for attorneys and paralegals who wish to undertake pro bono assignments from the Pro Bono Program or other legal services providers in District. These sessions are taught by experienced legal services provider practitioners and private bar practitioners, and are sponsored by D.C. Bar Sections, law firms and legal services providers. The training sessions address a wide array of legal areas, including Bankruptcy, Political Asylum, Family Law, Landlord–Tenant Law, Veterans' Claims and Parole Advocacy. In 2012, the Training Program sponsored 21 training sessions attended by over 900 new volunteers, legal assistants and D.C. legal services provider practitioners.
