Our Pro Bono Practice

The landscape is changing. Pro bono activity has expanded from pursuing
access to justice for the poor to pursuing better systems of justice
and greater respect for human life around the world.

Numerous forces drive this change. The growing influence of public international law on humanitarian and environmental issues is undeniable. Nongovernmental bodies are becoming sophisticated players with real impact. Corporations and social venture firms are bringing the power of the private sector to bear. Governments increasingly cooperate to face cross-border problems no one state can address.

At the same time, the capabilities of global law firms and the quality of the infrastructure to deploy their services on these issues have never been greater.

Just as the legal profession has long had a duty to represent the poor, we believe global law firms have an obligation to help advance these emerging forces for change.
