Ways to Support

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.

We extend an invitation to distinguished firms, companies and organizations to participate in this spectacular event as our valued sponsors. We are offering prominent exposure to legal professionals throughout Asia and globally, as well as offer an excellent goodwill opportunity to businesses. (email us at [email protected])
