PBI’s Global Pro Bono Project staff provide tailored, confidential assistance to law firms and legal departments on how to structure an effective global pro bono program, develop appropriate policies and practices, and identify suitable, compelling global pro bono opportunities.
Research and Development
The project conducts research and surveys to gather empirical evidence about the state of pro bono around the world, identifies existing obstacles to pro bono service – such as practice limitations, regulations, ethical prohibitions and cultural concerns, and develops best practices. The solutions that the project implements are firmly grounded in the target country’s history, culture, and existing legal aid system.
Project experts participate in multinational conferences on pro bono and access to justice, conduct speaking engagements, and lead global pro bono workshops at PBI’s Annual Conference.
The project periodically produces publications to update law firms and legal departments on the state of global pro bono, identify obstacles to global pro bono service, and share best practices. See our Global Pro Bono Survey.
