Speaker Series

As part of Philadelphia VIP’s 30th Anniversary, VIP will host a quarterly Speaker Series in 2011. The series features prominent experts who will discuss topic areas of interest to VIP’s volunteers that are connected to VIP’s core focus areas. We invite current and prospective volunteer attorneys to join in this opportunity to learn about VIP’s priority areas and how you too can be a part of insuring that our system of laws in Philadelphia is also a system of justice.
The Speaker Series events are co-sponsored by the Philadelphia Bar Association's Public Interest Section.
