The European Pro Bono Week is an exciting initiative being organised collaboratively by a number of law firms that are a part of the European Pro Bono Initiative, as well as pro bono clearinghouses and organisations. There will be events held in over 10 cities across the week, including Paris, Madrid, Milan, Frankfurt and Brussels. Events will focus on the delivery of pro bono to NGOs, discussion panels on pro bono opportunities and challenges, and celebrations of pro bono development in that city / country.
Within the context of the inaugural European Pro Bono Week, Cleary Gottlieb, DLA Piper, Mayer Brown, PILnet, Skadden, and The Good Lobby will run a half-day event to bring together all the different actors that are involved with pro bono in Belgium.
