Asia Pro Bono Conference: Doing Pro Bono the Development Way Workshop

16 September 2019 - 9:30am to 3:30pm
Hotel Yellow Pagoda, Kathmandu,

A4ID’s interactive workshop, ‘Doing Pro Bono the Development Way’ will use practical case studies to introduce participants to tools for the planning, delivery and monitoring of legal technical assistance in a development context. These tools, widely used in the development sector, include political-economy analysis, developing a theory of change, the COM-B model and universal questions for monitoring and evaluation. Together the tools ensure legal and judicial specialists are able to analyse the factors contributing to visible rule of law problems; articulate the logic and rationale behind their selected activities and how those activities will address the problems identified. Pro bono providers will understand key development concepts and principles and how they are relevant to international pro bono work.

The workshop is designed to give an insight to how legal and judicial specialists can practically use their expertise to contribute to the development agenda. It is part of a curriculum, developed by the ROLE UK programme, on best practices for development-centric technical assistance. The workshop will be delivered by A4ID’s ROLE UK programme, in partnership with iprobono, during the 8th Asia Pro Bono Conference in Nepal.

More information about the development tools covered in this workshop can be found in the Maximising Technical Assistance to Improve the Rule of Law: A Guide and the Monitoring & Evaluation Toolbox.

The session is open to participants of the 8th Asia Pro Bono Conference in Kathmandu, Nepal. However, spaces will be limited, so if you are interested in attending please register via the Asia Pro Bono Conference website.
