“The inaugural Asia/Asia Pro Bono Conference was held in Vientiane Lao PDR in 2012 and has since developed into an annual event. The conference is a celebration of pro bono work, where emphasis is made on its relevance and importance and where stakeholders come together to share and learn the ways pro bono ethos can be furthered regionally and globally. Singapore is delighted to host the 3rd Conference with a theme on Public-Private-People partnership(s). This 3rd Conference will take delegates on an exciting and inspiring journey through the regional pro bono ecosystem and provide an unparalleled platform to educate, learn, engage and most importantly, to foster collaborative ties. Come join us for an unique experience in Singapore.” – Mr Wendell Wong, Chairman Singapore Organising Committee

The first 2 days are located in the heart of Singapore’s bustling arts and heritage district of Bugis. On Day 3, the event continues at the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law, one of the leaders in Singapore’s pro bono movement.
