Join PILnet and others who made the Global Refugee Forum pledge for networking and dialogue between law firms and civil society in Asia. NGOs that work with and for refugees and others forcibly displaced will be able to pitch concrete pro bono project ideas to law firms. To put their commitment to the GRF pledge into action, it is expected that law firms come to the roundtable with the intention to take on one or more of the projects pitched.
Participation is welcome from law firms that have not signed on to the pledge yet, though they will be encouraged to do so. Follow-up support to match law firms with NGOs and to establish a pro bono partnership will also be provided by PILnet after the roundtable.
The roundtable will take place via zoom on 28 October 2020, 10:30-12:30 HKT.
