12th Asia Pro Bono Conference &

Access to Justice Exchange

Philippines, 2023

We hope you are well after a fantastic gathering for the 11th Asia Pro Bono Virtual Conference & Access to Justice Exchange, 2022. It is fair to say that so much was achieved, and the events exceeded all expectations.

Thank you so much for supporting the 11APBVC&A2JX. Without your support, either/both financial and/or through in-kind support, these events would not have been the successes they were.

When we factor in the 11APBVC&A2JX, we had almost 494 participants and volunteers from more than 32 countries and close to 51 sessions. All attending from both Asia, and around the globe, to help ensure greater access to justice and strengthen and expand pro bono initiatives.

The positive feedback we have been receiving has been incredibly heartwarming and very appreciated. Each year, the APBC&A2JX has achieved an enormous impact. This year, with all of you participating, and supporting in the way you did, things were taken to an even higher level.

All of this was done professionally while never losing the community values, warmth and closeness that make the APBVC&A2JX different from so many other events. As happens almost every year, participants have been telling us how “this conference is so different,” how glad they were to be a part of it, and how this conference demonstrates practical ways to bring diverse communities together.

This year was no different, and we have continuously been receiving such amazingly positive feed-back and input.

For now, we want to send a huge thank you again to for trusting in the impact of what these events bring, and for supporting the event in the way you have.

Together we are all an unstoppable, positive force. Let’s keep growing this Pro Bono and Access to Justice Movement together.

Supporting the Asia Pro Bono Movement

Each year’s Conference & Exchange is organised by volunteers, NGOs and others with the support of our sponsors and a range of organisations around the Asia region.

Each year, the Asia Pro Bono Conference and Access to Justice Exchange 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 how to become a partner through sponsorship.

The  Asia Pro Bono Conference & Access to Justice Exchange is an initiative founded in 2012.

The event celebrates and emphasizes pro bono legal work and legal ethics, discussing ways to further the outreach of the pro bono ethos and impact throughout Asia and around the globe.  Continue reading
