PILnet: The Global Network for Public Interest Law is pleased to announce that registration for the 2014 European Pro Bono Forum—to take place on 5-7 November in London, U.K.—is now open. The Forum has played a major role in building support for pro bono across the continent and around the globe. By bringing together a growing community that recognizes the urgent need for pro bono—leading figures from law firms, corporations, bar organizations, NGOs, and law schools—the event offers a setting where participants can explore how they can most effectively collaborate to address critical issues of social justice. Through interactive workshops, engaging social events, and structured networking opportunities, attendees gain insight into the pro bono community and forge alliances that can help deliver justice and protect rights around the world.
The 2014 Forum will include a heightened focus on the real-world tools that are needed to run a successful pro bono program, projects for in-house counsel, Roma rights, and the use of technology to promote change. Local, European and global concerns regarding the application of pro bono will all be on the table. The winners of PILnet’s prestigious European Pro Bono Awards will also be announced at the Forum.
The Forum will run as a central event of the U.K.’s National Pro Bono Week–a time to celebrate and encourage the contributions lawyers make, free-of-charge, to those in need.
