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.
