PILnet serves as the Secretariat of the Hong Kong Pro Bono Roundtable, which was created in 2014 to connect, activate, and coordinate pro bono lawyers in Hong Kong to maximize the impact of their efforts, such as mobilizing legal services, organizing joint interventions, and building a pro bono community. A longtime participant, PILnet leads the coordination of the Pro Bono Roundtable to help steer it toward becoming a vehicle for more substantive action, collaboration, and information sharing.
The Roundtable has a member network of 167 lawyers, representing more than 80 institutions, including attorneys from law firms, law school professors, NGO representatives and in-house counsel. The group meets once per quarter with a steering committee coordinating the meetings. The next meeting will be scheduled in spring 2021.
