Pro Bono Week celebrates the role played by volunteer lawyers, all across Europe, in supporting civil society and human rights organizations and promoting access to justice for those in need.
From 23 to 27 November, takes place the European Pro Bono Week, co-organized by European Pro Bono Initiative, PILnet, TrustLaw, and the European Pro Bono Alliance in order to celebrate the role of pro bono and lawyers in supporting civil society and human rights organizations and promoting access to justice.
The main aim of this event is to bring together lawyers, law students, non-profits, human rights activists, academics and businesses to talk about important social and legal issues within Europe and the role for pro bono in tacking these issues. This year, the main theme of the event will be the role of pro bono to fight against the global crisis.
The European Pro Bono Week takes place every day during that week across the continent. Each local event has a unique agenda, focusing on the most pressing legal needs and social issues in that city, region or country. Events focused on the delivery of pro bono to civil society organizations, discussion panels on pro bono opportunities and challenges, and celebrations of pro bono development locally.
The inaugural European Pro Bono Week was hold in November 2019 with events in more than 10 cities across the week, including Paris, Madrid, Milan, Frankfurt, and Brussels.
