Programme

 2020 Conference Theme :
“ASIA VISION 20/20 : PRO BONO, PRO-ACTIVE.”

The revised 9th Asia Pro Bono Conference programme is being designed now. The revised programme will build on the original programme designed when the event was to be held in Cebu, Philippines in September 2020, but will also include thematic focuses that consider many of the justice issues we now face due to the current Covid-19 virus pandemic. 

We are hopeful to have this revised programme designed and ready to view soon. 

In 2013 in Vietnam – the late Ms. Esther Lardent (Pro Bono Institute’s President and CEO) spoke of the difference between pro bono and the American government controlled ‘Legal Aid’, meaning “services provided to low-income or disenfranchised groups”. Hence, Ms. Lardent gave her definition of pro bono as, “lawyers in private practice who are doing such work for free as part of their professional obligations to the legal community”.
