Michelle Leung, LinkedIn Corporation
What made you interested in becoming an Advisory Board member for OneJustice?
I was first introduced to OneJustice through a JusticeBus clinic over five years ago. Since then I have worked with OneJustice on a number of clinics, and I have consistently been impressed with OneJustice’s commitment and reach in serving the legal needs of the underserved communities throughout California. I firmly believe in OneJustice’s vision that everyone should have access to high quality legal services, and I’d like to join the Advisory Board to play a more impactful role in helping OneJustice achieve its very important mission.
What is your professional role and how do you hope to use your perspective?
I lead the Corporate legal team at LinkedIn Corporation and am a member of our legal team’s pro bono committee. I hope to leverage my experience on our pro bono committee to help OneJustice deepen its relationships with law firms and other in-house legal departments.
What would you like to accomplish as an Advisory Board member?
During my tenure as Advisory Board member, I hope to increase in-house counsel participation in pro bono clinics and to use my network to help increase support for OneJustice.
