Pro Bono As We See It
February 7, 2014

Global Pro Bono Practitioners – You’re Invited!



The PBEye invites global pro bono practitioners to join us March 5-7 at the 2014 PBI Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.  Each year PBI brings together pro bono leaders from law firms, legal departments, and public interest organizations from around the world to meet with and learn from each other to improve access to justice through pro bono.

In response to growing interest in pro bono projects around the world, this year the PBI Annual Conference is dedicating two sessions to global pro bono on Thursday, March 6:

Marketplace of Ideas: Global, 1:30-2:30 pm
As previously announced, this year we are featuring a globally oriented Marketplace of Ideas session.  This fast-paced program will feature brief presentations on global pro bono projects and an opportunity to share information and learn about new opportunities, offerings, and other global pro bono developments.

Global Pro Bono: Best Practices, 4:00-5:00 pm

Do you have an idea for a new global pro bono project, but are uncertain as to how to move forward?  This discussion will explore the practical nuts and bolts of turning a global pro bono concept into a reality.  Emphasis will be placed on the methodology of vetting and securing global pro bono projects.
