ABOUT PBC

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. Organised jointly by ALSA Singapore and the National University of Singapore (NUS) Pro Bono Group (PBG), PBC will be the first ALSA regional pro bono conference.

 

The Conference provides 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. ⠀

Through panel and table discussions, participants will also get the chance to explore a multitude of issues ranging from the value and purpose of pro bono to pro bono initiatives in their own schools. Together with the rest of the delegation from their respective countries, identify legal issues relevant to their jurisdictions and generate ideas to develop impactful and sustainable pro bono projects.
