VIDEO: Pro Bono for Global Social Change

The PBEye has been excited to report on various global pro bono efforts that have harnessed the power of attorneys to affect social change.  So of course we were delighted to talk to Edwin Rekosh, executive director of PILnet (formerly the Public Interest Law Institute), abut his organization’s mission to promote the use of law for social change.  Internationally, civil society organizations are using legal tools to pursue certain public interests, but don’t always have the backing of pro bono lawyers that they do in the U.S.  That’s where PILnet seeks to strengthen pro bono culture to assist foreign NGOs.
