About the Presidents Reception & D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center

Since 1993, past presidents of the D.C. Bar have hosted the Presidents Reception to honor the incoming president of the Bar and to support the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, the largest provider of pro bono legal help in the District of Columbia. With the support of our generous donors and dedicated attorney volunteers, we operate award-winning legal clinics, projects, and resource centers that serve more than 20,000 individuals, nonprofits, and small businesses each year.

This year, the Presidents Reception honors incoming D.C. Bar President Geoffrey M. Klineberg.

Donors of $250 or more are acknowledged in the Presidents Reception invitation, event program, Washington Lawyer magazine (distributed to more than 100,000 members of the Bar), and on the D.C. Bar website.
