This year’s Conference is organised by unpaid volunteers with the support of our sponsors and a range of organisations around the region.
Each year, the Asia Pro Bono Conference is run on a revenue-neutral basis meaning we minimise the registration fees as much as possible and use any surplus to subsidise the attendance of regional pro bono champions, who could not otherwise afford to attend. You can help directly. Learn more about our sponsors.
