Many pro bono programs struggle with data collection and grant reporting. This session will explore cutting-edge data analytic techniques being applied in Florida and Virginia for evaluating and improving pro bono case output, volunteer lawyer recruitment, retention, and utilization, donated pro bono hours, and law firm fundraising. Participants will hear directly from developers of innovative new data analytic methods and learn how to apply these methods to their own program.
