New in 2022: Shape the Agenda

You are invited to organize a Working Session for the 2022 PILnet Forum in Dublin. PILnet calls on passionate lawyers and advocates in the field to fully develop timely, relevant sessions of interest to you! The goal is to gather diverse stakeholders for engaged discussion, collaboration, and planning.

Your session may relate to any topic of relevance to pro bono and public interest lawyering, but the goal of each session will be to generate and share new ideas, build connections, and advance action plans that use legal tools and the expertise of lawyers to build more just and fair societies.

Please read the session proposal guidelines and procedures in full before submitting a proposal and follow all instructions closely.

Why the Forum?

The PILnet Global Forum highlighted that the need for pro bono is rising and so is the need for new, innovative ways to deliver these services to enhance access to justice globally.

PILnet strengthens all links to create opportunities for social change by using a golden key: Law.

Gregory Vijayendran, President, Law Society of Singapore

I’ve attended the PILnet Forum for many years and each year I come away with a new insight and connection. It is a unique space bringing together a global community with the common aim of improving access to justice through the power of pro bono.
