Allison Day, Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP
What made you interested in becoming an Advisory Board member for OneJustice?
During my first few years at my firm, I had the privilege of working with some amazing organizations on pro bono matters addressing immigration and education adequacy issues. Based on those experiences, I wanted to find a way to support other lawyers looking to contribute. I learned about OneJustice from a former colleague, Josh Meltzer, and thought that it would be a fantastic way to promote pro bono efforts in my community.
What is your professional role and how do you hope to use your perspective?
I am currently a litigation associate at Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP in San Francisco. I know that my colleagues are always looking for opportunities to give back while simultaneously honing their litigation skills. I hope to contribute ideas and insights about how to make pro bono work a seamless and fulfilling part of my peers’ practice.
What would you like to accomplish as an Advisory Board member?
As an Advisory Board member, I hope to both learn more about the needs of my local community and help OneJustice extend its outreach. I’m looking forward to contributing my love for developing new organizational systems and structures to support the great work that is already being done.
Tell us about yourself – interesting facts or what do you like to do for fun?
My father was in the military and I moved around quite a bit as a child, but I’ve always thought of California as my home. After spending 7 years on the East Coast, I’m thrilled to be back in the Bay Area and have enjoyed being able to get outside and enjoy all that California has to offer, whether its walking along the coast or hiking in the Sierra.
