Week of events to discuss role of pro bono law

A week of virtual events aimed at celebrating the role played by volunteer lawyers in supporting civil society and those in need begins on 22 November.

Pro Bono Week Ireland will bring together lawyers, law students, non-profits, academics, and businesses, for what the organisers say will be an engaging conversation on the impact and role of pro bono in tackling important social and legal issues.

The event, which is being co-ordinated by FLAC’s Public Interest Law Alliance (PILA), will be launched by the former Chief Justice Frank Clarke at 5pm on 22 November.

‘Bootcamp’ planned

This will be followed by presentations from the President of the Law Society Michelle Ní Longáin (pictured), and the chair of the Bar Council Maura McNally SC.

Larry Donnelly will then host a conversation with PILA legal officer Danielle Curtis BL about the impact of pro bono in Ireland.

Other events throughout the week include a pro bono ‘bootcamp’, a discussion on the Charities Governance Code, and a session on data protection for NGOs.
