As reported in an earlier Wire, Wyeth Inc. recently launched its pro bono program with a videoconferenced meeting in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts.  The informative discussion included topics such as Wyeth's pro bono partnerships with Legal Services of New Jersey and with Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania and trends in corporate pro bono.  Videos from the event featuring selected remarks by Lawrence Stein, Senior Vice President & General Counsel, and Bret Parker, Chief Trademark & Copyright Counsel and Assistant General Counsel, are now available on the Pro Bono Institute website.  Click here to view the videos.

Wyeth's program, which was thoughtfully developed, has developed a pro bono policy, a pro bono committee, and a pro bono web page on the department's intranet under the pro bono leadership of Bret Parker.
