PILnet’s Global Awards recognize the best pro bono legal projects undertaken in a global context. PILnet’s key objective in bestowing these awards is to celebrate outstanding efforts, collaborative and independent, on behalf of civil society activities and public interest lawyering. Through the awards, PILnet also seeks to encourage the development of long-lasting and substantial partnerships and networks through which the legal community can better serve the public interest and advance social change.

*The awards jury is independent of PILnet and PILnet staff, and includes prominent members from civil society and the private legal community.
