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
