The 3rd Asia Pro Bono Conference and Workshop will bring together academics, law students, lawyers, judiciary, pro bono professionals, policy makers, civil society and non-profit representatives to consider the multifarious ways pro bono initiatives can strengthen access to justice in Southeast Asia and internationally.

  • Demonstrate the importance of pro bono initiatives to achieve greater access to justice for poor, marginalised and disadvantaged communities in Southeast Asia and internationally;
  • Foster collaborative ties between conference participants to conceptualise, design, launch and strengthen pro bono initiatives locally, regionally and internationally;
