Law Firms for Repro Rights work

Postby jemi1588 » Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:11 pm

Hi all I'm curious to know if anyone has information on law firms that would have the best opportunities to pursue repro rights/women's rights work. For example, maybe they're known for taking on pro bono work in that field or maybe they have a partner who sits on the board for a non-profit that pursues that work. I am interested in moving to a non-profit after a few years at a firm and would like to situate myself to make that jump, if possible, by having the opportunity to pursue that type of work while in private practice.

Like protection to access to abortion, preventative screenings, affordable gynecological services, etc.

This may be a good starting point:

May be to a certain degree office-dependent though. E.g. I’m not sure I’d try to do repro rights pro bono if I were at Gibson DC, even though Gibson is on this list.
