In conjunction with that hybrid event, Lawyers Weekly is pleased to bring you another podcast, this one with the winner of the Pro Bono Partner of the Year. 

Lawyers Weekly deputy editor Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Belinda Hegarty from Commonwealth Bank of Australia, platinum partner of the Partner of the Year Awards, to interview Arnold Bloch Leibler public interest law partner Peter Seidel about his winning of this category, the importance of pro bono work, particularly in the extraordinary year of 2020, how his firm operates and promotes pro bono work, and what motivates him in his daily work.


The trio also discuss the findings of CBA’s Legal Market Pulse report, and – leading on from those findings – how best firms can utilise pro bono work to recruit talent, balance pro bono work with profitability, and ensure pro bono forms part of a firm’s training and development.
