The Board Observer Program (BOP) is a joint effort of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation and the Philadelphia Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division and the Delivery of Legal Services Committee. The BOP matches young attorneys as "observers" with non-profit boards to give them experience and exposure to the work of area legal services organizations without the financial obligation of a board contribution.

Bar Foundations in Action
The Oklahoma Bar Foundation (OBF) has been busy with a new Community Fellows Program to meet a state-wide, growing need for critical legal services. The program joins individual lawyers and organizational donors of the OBF to provide free legal assistance to the poor and elderly, safe havens for the abused, protection and legal assistance for children, and public law-related education programs, including education programs for children. Through its promotion of corporate giving and commitment to serve low-income individuals and educate youth, the OBF is investing in future generations to create thriving, safer communities for Oklahomans. Featured in the picture above is the Bank of Oklahoma, an organizational recipient of the OBF’s Community Fellows plaque and major contributor to both the IOLTA and Fellows programs.
For more information on the program, please contact Nancy Norsworthy at: firstname.lastname@example.org
