The State of Pro Bono Around the World, and New Global Resources
The 2016 PBI Annual Conference will offer many new and compelling sessions, including a timely discussion addressing global pro bono and possible obstacles to participation. The State of Pro Bono Around the World (Thursday, March 24, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) will explore global pro bono practices, including differences in delivery structures, practice rules, national and local legal cultures, and the need for and availability of pro bono matters. Included in the discussion will be two soon-to-be-released resources:
- the 2016 edition of the Latham & Watkins*† Survey of Pro Bono Practices and Opportunities, and
- the new Global Due Diligence Manual.
We hope to see you at the session!
