It’s tough to imagine a Washington white-collar crime lawyer on the streets of Ethiopia — where one person’s annual income is equal to a billable hour for many U.S. attorneys — but that’s exactly where DLA Piper partner Sheldon Krantz will be in June. He leads DLA’s nonprofit subsidiary New Perimeter, which focuses on international pro bono work. For its latest project, DLA lawyers are teaching spring semester courses at Ethiopia’s Addis Ababa Law School and working with faculty to establish a resource center on law and economic development. DLA has partnered with Northwestern University School of Law and Accenture for the project. Krantz says 20 DLA lawyers are involved. The lawyers go in teams of about four and spend two weeks teaching at the school. One team has already returned, and another team recently arrived. Krantz will lead a team in June that will cover corporate crime. DLA has agreed to a two-year commitment with Addis Ababa Law School, and will send more lawyers for the fall semester.
