Davis Polk’s Pro Bono Counsel for Racial Justice Initiatives Diane Lucas was recently featured in The Clinical and Pro Bono Programs of Harvard Law School’s “Keeping Tabs” series. The series follows alumni on their careers after graduation, the lasting impacts of their clinical and pro bono experiences at Harvard Law School and their experiences in a variety of sectors of law. In the article, Diane discusses her role at the firm, the firm’s pro bono racial justice initiatives, how law firms can create successful partnerships with nonprofits and community organizations, her varied experiences working across government, public interest and the private sector, and her advice to law students interested in engaging in pro bono work.

“Pro bono cases are an opportunity for you to hone your legal skills or learn new ones, while working on impactful cases for pro bono clients,” Diane noted.
