Join us in Dublin on October 17-19 as we come together to rebuild our networks, to grow and strengthen our field, and to advance and promote the role of pro bono not only in times of crisis but also in support of ongoing efforts to create just, equitable, and sustainable societies for our future.

Registration closes on October 9, 2022 or when 350 people have registered. No on-site registration is available.


We are pleased to announce that we are now offering an option for virtual participation in the Forum! While we are planning for a robust in-person event and hope to see all of you in Dublin in October, we recognize that not everyone will be able to join us, so we will be streaming a portion of our programming straight to you!

Cancellation and Refund
Refund requests must be made in writing to PILnet at [email protected]. Full refunds will be given for cancellations received on or before 30 September, 2022 less a 15% processing charge. No refunds will be given for cancellations received after 30 September, 2022.

If there is a Covid outbreak or changes in Ireland’s restrictions that require us to cancel the Forum, PILnet will endeavor to refund all or a portion of registration fees. For personal cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances, please contact [email protected].

Local Covid-19 protocols
We ask that all participants adhere to local Covid-19 protocols. It is the responsibility of each participant to ensure they are following policies and restrictions applicable to their country. You can find up-to-date information from the Ireland Department of Health regarding travel restrictions here and general public health policies here. Further, Radisson Blu’s Covid-19 policies and information can be found here.

PILnet’s Global Forum is a revenue neutral event with up to one third of participants invited to speak during the 20 sessions occurring over three days. In order to stage the various meetings, sessions and receptions, and to subsidize the cost of participation for some non-profit organizations, PILnet cannot cover the registration fee for all speakers. PILnet is also not in a position to cover the cost of speaker travel and accommodation.

Session organizers who wish to attend any session other than their own are required to pay the appropriate registration fee. We ask that external organizers of sessions support the related costs of their session speakers should they require support, including travel, lodging and event registration, or to assist their presenters with obtaining support.

If those organizers or speakers only wish to attend their own session, they can apply for a registration fee waiver. NGO, university and bar association speakers may also apply a fee waiver with the assistance of the session organizer (a limited number of speaker waivers are available).
