In an effort to beef up the pro bono contributions of in-house counsel, increase the availability of legal services to those in need and address some nagging questions that may impede the ability of corporate attorneys to pitch in, Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman has directed a statewide committee to promptly explore the issues.
