Thanks in part to funding from Bill and Melinda Gates, Pro Bono Net has developed a Web-based platform for law firms to manage and promote their pro bono work. To be launched early in 2007, it is called Pro Bono Manager. An article in the Pro Bono Net newsletter says the software will centralize all information related to a firm’s pro bono program and simplify reporting, staffing and oversight.
