2014-15 Lawyers As Volunteers Advisory (LAVA) Panel Report
Katherine S. Holliday, Chair & Alice K. Moore, Vice-Chair

Throughout the 2014-15 year, the LAVA Panel Chair and Vice-Chair facilitated discussions among the LAVA committees’ leaders to discuss collaboration and strategic initiatives aimed at strengthening the MCB’s volunteer efforts.  Those committees include the Community Services, Legal Volunteer Recruitment, and Nonprofit and Client Pro Bono Committees.  LAVA Panel members provided critical feedback regarding the planning and implementation of these volunteer efforts.  In addition, the LAVA Panel and leaders of the LAVA committees worked with local legal-services providers in an effort to strengthen the relationship between the MCB and these important organizations.

Two of the LAVA committees, the Nonprofit and Client Pro Bono and Legal Volunteer Recruitment Committees, will be joined for the 2015-16 year as the Pro Bono and Legal Recruitment Committee.
