Host: 
Asia Pro Bono Conference Secretariat

Advocates for International Development (A4ID) is participating in the inaugural Asia Pro Bono Virtual Conference and Access to Justice Exchange (APBVC and A2J Exchange) between 24-28 September 2020.

In line with the conference theme, ‘Pro Bono in a Transitioning Environment,’ A4ID is hosting the following topical panel sessions and workshop: 

During these times of pandemic and economic downturn, we need to reflect on the most sustainable and responsible business practices. In this session, the panellists, who come from various fields of expertise, will explore issues of unemployment and labour rights, sharing strategies to promote responsible business practices and actively engage lawyers to drive change and achieve gold standards.

 

This panel session will examine the threats that the COVID-19 crisis presents to human rights, access to justice and progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Panellists will discuss how the legal community can work together to build a sustainable future, where individual freedom, accessible healthcare and human dignity is ensured.

 

In this two-part, interactive virtual workshop, A4ID’s ROLE UK Programme Team will use practical case studies to introduce participants to tools for the planning, delivery and monitoring of legal pro bono assistance in a development context.
