ALSA Around the World
Pro Bono Conference II
26 & 27 June 2021
ALSA Singapore Law Students’ Pro Bono Conference (“PBC”) is a regional conference that seeks to advance the spirit of pro bono amongst law students in the region. The first PBC was jointly organised by ALSA Singapore and the National University of Singapore (NUS) Pro Bono Group (PBG), and was the first ALSA regional Pro Bono Conference.
The Conference provided law students with an interactive platform to share their pro bono experiences as well as a collaborative workshop to conceptualise, grow and incubate sustainable pro bono projects that can be implemented in their respective jurisdictions.
In 2020, the world was struck by Covid-19, and it changed the way we work, live, and the way we view the world more than anything has in the past decade. Technology and videoconferencing have been around a long time, but the pandemic made it an indispensable and unavoidable part of life as we now know.
In this instalment of our Pro Bono Conference (PBC II), in collaboration and support of the ALSA International Board, we hope to bring speakers and delegates from around the world to discuss the disruption of traditional pro bono, and exchange ideas of how we can better chart the way forward together.
