From 21 to 25 November 2022, Europe will hold its fourth annual “European Pro Bono Week”. European Pro Week celebrates the role played by volunteer lawyers, across Europe, in supporting civil society and promoting access to justice for those in need. During the week, events take place across Europe to highlight and promote pro bono culture. A central objective of Pro Bono Week is to bring together various stakeholders in the pro bono ecosystem – lawyers, law students, non-profits, human rights activists, academics, and business – for an engaging conversation.
