4 Transactional lawyers across the United States have continued their comprehensive support to the Hispanic Scholarship Fund in the areas of employment, contracts, intellectual property, corporate, tax and finance matters. HSF provides scholarships to Latino students, as well as related support services. HSF seeks to give students all the tools they need to apply to college, do well in their course work, graduate, and enter and excel in a profession. They have awarded over $400 million in scholarships. Orrick lawyers, working with the Northern California Innocence Project at Santa Clara University School of Law, successfully overturned the wrongful conviction of our client for arson and triple murder. The client, George Souliotes, 72, had served 16 years of his three life terms sentence. The district judge found that Mr. Souliotes had received ineffective assistance of counsel at trial, a year after his attorneys persuaded the judge of Mr. Souliotes actual innocence, successfully arguing his conviction was based on faulty fire science and that no reasonable juror today would convict him. Ultimately, the state of California agreed not to retry Mr. Souliotes and released him for time served. List up to three pro bono matters that are highlights (e.g., a Supreme Court case). Please limit your answer to a short paragraph per matter. A litigation team in New York very favorably settled a putative class action on behalf of fifteen (15) children who were detained by the Office of Children and Family Services ( OCFS ) as juvenile delinquents in the State s detention facilities. Orrick and the Legal Aid Society of New York filed this civil rights class action on behalf of all children who are now or will be civilly confined in the limited secure residential centers, reception residential centers, and the nonsecure Lansing Residential Center operated by OCFS, who have been placed for rehabilitative purposes in OCFS custody by New York State Family Court judges as a result of juvenile delinquency proceedings, and who allege that they were subject to a pattern and practice of unconstitutional and excessive force by employees of OCFS and deprived of legally required mental health services while in OCFS care and custody. In reaching a comprehensive settlement that requires OCFS to implement large-scale reforms in facilities focused on both mental health and physical restraint practices, the team also secured a substantial six-figure settlement for the plaintiffs. In one of the most closely watched appeals of the term, the Supreme Court, by a 6 3 margin, held in favor of our client that the doctrine of first sale, which allows for legally acquired copyrighted works to be resold by their owners, applies to works made overseas. The much-anticipated ruling came in the case of Kirtsaeng v. Wiley, and reversed the Second Circuit, which had ruled that the term lawfully made limited first sale specifically and exclusively to works that are made in territories in which the U.S. Copyright Act is law, and not to foreign-manufactured works.

Orrick regularly sponsors such trainings at its offices and covers the costs of all trainings that our attorneys wish to attend.

The firm collaborates on this project with organizations including the Los Angeles Bar Association, the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County and Her Justice. In addition, the firm utilizes summer associates to work on many of our high profile, interesting and sophisticated pro bono matters being handled every day across the firm. Does the firm have established programs, such as externships, that enable its associates to work in a public interest setting? Please describe the established program(s) and their duration, if applicable. For the past several years, Orrick has offered incoming associates the opportunity to participate in a public interest fellowship program through which they are able to work for a legal services organization anywhere in the world and receive a stipend from the firm. The firm s Bay Area offices regularly send attorneys to work four months at a time at the San Francisco District Attorney s office. In 2014, the firm paid the salary of an associate who worked a three month externship for the Public International Law & Policy Group in Geneva, Switzerland and Istanbul, Turkey, advising the Syrian Coalition in connection with the on-going peace negotiations. What other law-related public interest and community service programs (that are not pro bono as defined by the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge) do you offer and manage? For example, list any law school collaborations and public interest scholarships, auctions at law schools, monetary support, or fellowships. Orrick s Community Responsibility Program ensures that the firm s resources are strategically organized and deployed to maximize both its community impact, as well as opportunities for Orrick lawyers and staff to participate. Through a combination of volunteerism, financial contributions and pro bono legal services, Orrick supports programs that strengthen and build better communities in its focus areas of legal services and education. As just one example, Orrick sponsors a fellow to work at New York Legal Assistance Group, a legal services organization serving New York s most at-risk, low-income populations, as a full-time staff attorney. The fellow is designated as the LGBT fellow, and is the only legal services organization staff attorney who performs direct representation on behalf of the LGBT community in New York City Vault.com Inc.

6 What non-law related volunteer opportunities does your firm offer? For example, list any work with high school students and non-legal volunteerism for organizations like Habitat for Humanity. Orrick has supported the Bessie Carmichael Elementary School since 2003 when the firm entered into a unique partnership with the YMCA to provide both financial and volunteer support to its after-school program. Located just eight blocks from Orrick s office in San Francisco, the Bessie Carmichael Elementary School benefits from dozens of volunteers who provide homework tutoring to the students and plan other special events for the children. The Children s Storefront is a 40-year-old independent, tuitionfree school based in Harlem that serves pre-schoolers through eighth graders. Orrick s support of the nonprofit began in 2003 and has steadily expanded. Orrick attorneys represent parents and faculty with all of their legal matters, and the firm also represents the school with corporate, real estate and employment law issues. Orrick volunteers also meet with students on a weekly basis to provide homework assistance and tutorials. In addition, lawyers and staff participate in an annual street fair celebrating the end of the school year, and have also cleaned and planted the Storefront s garden which is now useable for all. The Birthday books program is another cherished tradition. For the tenth consecutive year, Orrick New York hosted the Legal Outreach Summer Law Internship Program for high school students from Legal Outreach, a nonprofit organization that motivates students from underserved communities in New York City through law instruction, professional exposure and simulations. The summer experience included two mock exercises. The panel of judges included Orrick New York partners. No surprise 100% of Legal Outreach seniors graduated and went on to college. More than 25 lawyers and staff from Orrick s San Francisco and Silicon Valley offices, along with friends and family members, spent a Saturday in April with Rebuilding Together, improving two homes for owners who could not afford to do the work themselves. In Silicon Valley, the focus was on repainting the interior of an entire house. In San Francisco, the team focused on clean up and fix-up, including installation of new appliances. Rebuilding Together s mission is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities, assuring that low-income homeowners, from the elderly and disabled to families with children, live in warmth, safety, and independence. Our Washington, DC office has established a strong partnership with Hands on DC. Attorneys and staff volunteer to landscape, repaint and otherwise beautify local community centers and schools. Please list any special recognition or awards your firm has won since 2012 for its pro bono work. Who s Who Legal Inaugural Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year given to the firm for the percentage of the firm s total billed hours dedicated to pro bono, the steps taken to institutionalize pro bono, the percentage of participation throughout all levels of the firm and the firm s proudest pro bono moment. Law360 s Top 20 Pro Bono List Orrick was named to this prestigious list for the second consecutive year. The Katharine & George Alexander Community Law Center Community Award given to Orrick for its work and advocacy on human trafficking cases. Animal Legal Defense Fund Advancement in Animal Law Pro Bono Achievement Award given to the firm for its sustained commitment to promoting the interests of animals in the legal system. Orrick was honored by the DC Circuit Judicial Conference at its 40 at 50 breakfast for being one of a small group of DC firms that had at least 40 percent of its lawyers perform 50 or more pro bono hours in Legal Aid Society of New York Pro Bono Publico Award given to the firm for its work on a successfully resolved federal court class action case on behalf of fifteen children alleging that the commissioner of the state agency that detains them violated their constitutional and federal statutory rights by failing to provide them with adequate mental health services and misusing and overusing physical restraints. Appleseed Pillars of Justice Award Orrick was honored for its work in promoting racial diversity in the New York City public school system. Volunteer Legal Services Program (San Francisco) Exceptional Volunteers recognizing eight (8) Orrick lawyers for their dedicated service to the poverty law programs operated by the Volunteer Legal Services Program of the San Francisco Bar. New York City Family Court Volunteer Attorney Program Outstanding Service Award given to the firm s pro bono counsel for his sustained dedication to the Court s pro bono clinic program that he helped to establish more than five years ago. Please add any additional information about your firm s pro bono program. Orrick s tradition always has embraced an ethic of community responsibility. The firm s leaders and its lawyers believe that we are blessed with talents and opportunities to contribute to those less fortunate than ourselves. Our pro bono work enables us to use our legal skills to help individuals, organizations and communities who can benefit from our expertise. Our community volunteerism and financial contributions supplement that pro bono work to further enrich the people and communities where we ourselves work and live. Orrick counts an associate s and of counsel s pro bono hours toward their billable hour requirement. Including pro bono work as billable is intended to emphasize the firm s deep commitment to pro bono work and to encourage the pro bono efforts of our attorneys. We recognize that work on a pro bono matter may occupy a substantial amount of an attorney s time during a particular year and we believe that it is entirely appropriate. Visit for company rankings, ratings and reviews to learn what it s really like to work in an industry or company and how to position yourself to land that job. 479

7 Accordingly, we have not established a maximum number of pro bono hours that are counted toward the billable hour expectation. Attorneys are given the opportunity to take on pro bono matters that they are interested in, and are never assigned to such matters. As such, attorneys, including juniorlevel associates, generally run their own pro bono project and thus can develop substantial professional development in the process. Orrick is also proud to report that attorneys in our non-u.s. based offices consistently take part in the firm s robust pro bono program. In 2013, lawyers in Orrick s foreign offices billed more than 5,895 hours of pro bono work, the highest total ever. This number reflects the increased interest in and opportunities to perform pro bono work in Europe and Asia. For example, our Tokyo office continues its work with the Wild Salmon Center and the Sarufutsu Itou no Kai to protect the endangered Itou, often referred to as Japan s legendary fish due to their size one caught in 1988 was 83 inches long and weighed 231 pounds and radiant color. A team worked with the client to develop catch-and-release single barbless hook fishing regulations and to increase awareness about the Itou. After more than 15 years of effort by several organizations, Orrick convinced Sarufutsu-Mura Village to promulgate regulations governing fishing for Itou. This effort has been helped by the creation of regulations governing the fishing for Itou in nearby areas such as Lake Kanayama and Lake Shumarinai. In the summer of 2013, Orrick s Tokyo office leader also spoke at the 7th Itou Symposium in Sarufutsu, hosted by the Sarufutsu Itou Conservation Council and Sarufutsu Itou no Kai, to garner support from anglers for the new regulations. Another example is a Milan corporate associate who continued her work for great impact for low-income clients in Italy as Vice President of the Executive Committee of Avvocati per niente (Lawyers for Nothing), an association for pro bono legal assistance, which she cofounded in In addition to our pro bono work and serving on boards of various nonprofit organizations, Orrick attorneys and professional staff firm-wide organize food and toy drives during the holidays, volunteer to teach in local schools and participate in a variety of fundraising and volunteer days. At the heart of all of Orrick s activities are its core values: excellence and integrity, cooperation and individual respect and enthusiasm, and the pursuit of improvement. Our dedication to pro bono and volunteer work perfectly illustrate that the firm s commitment to those core values extend beyond our offices and into the world in which we live and work Vault.com Inc.
