Supporting the Asia Pro Bono Movement
All registration fees are put to great use to support the Asia Pro Bono movement. Each year, the Asia Pro Bono Conference is run on a revenue-neutral basis meaning we use any surplus to subsidise the attendance of regional “Pro Bono Champions” who could not otherwise afford to attend.

More details will be posted onto this site regularly. If you have a specific question please contact us at [email protected]
