In 2008, some General Electric Co. lawyers were discouraged. The legal department at the global technology, services and finance company had a 10-year-old, formal pro bono program in place, but a majority of the projects were geared toward lawyers located near the GE headquarters in Fairfield, Conn.

“We have a global legal department, and our mission is to have a global pro bono program,” explains Eileen Brumback, senior vice president and general counsel of GE Real Estate, the investment arm of GE Capital.
