If you have been looking for legal advice around your employment or other contracts, would like legal research undertaken on a certain area of law, need any other organizational legal support and/or could benefit from some additional legal support to address the legal needs of the displaced communities you work with, come join us for the
2022 Asia Pro Legal Community Bono Roundtable
taking place on 30 August 2022 at 2 – 4PM BKK / 3 – 5PM HKT
About the Roundtable
The Pitching Roundtable, hosted by PILnet, along with members of the GRF Legal Community Pledge, and other partners is scheduled for 30 August 2022. The Roundtable will enable NGOs/RLOs to pitch their pro bono project ideas to law firms and will facilitate interactive discussions between them. The Pitching Roundtable will take place virtually via zoom.
Leading up to the roundtable, two preparatory workshops were held to support legal aid service providers, RLOs and other NGOs working with and for refugees and others forcibly displaced, to develop pro bono projects to be pitched at the Roundtable.
What projects can be pitched?
Projects can range from legal research to direct representation cases for forcibly displaced persons as well as those seeking organizational legal support for NGOs/RLOs such as relating to employment contracts, registration, etc. To know more about what type of projects/services can be matched with law firm partners, please check out this Menu of Pro Bono Services. Follow-up support with completing the project template and designing the project request as well as resources to shape your project will also be provided.
The Roundtable presents a unique opportunity for the legal community to hear first-hand about the legal needs of refugees, other forcibly people and the organizations that work with them. If you are interested in providing pro bono legal support to a refugee-led organization or an NGO working with those forcibly displaced in Asia, come join us! Register here.
