If you are a legal professional licensed in a jurisdiction that requires the completion of continuing legal education ("CLE") or continuing professional development ("CPD") training to promote proficiency in legal practice, you may be familiar with a number of CLE / CPD providers that offer such content at varying levels of quality. What is often missing in such content, however, is the pro bono or public interest aspect. At The Global Pro Bono Bar, we believe that CLE and CPD training should both promote proficiency in legal skills and inspire members of the legal profession around the world to get involved in the sort of work that many members of the bar around the world find to be among the most personally fulfilling and meaningful aspects of their professional lives: pro bono or public interest work.
This is what The Global Pro Bono Practitioners Program is all about. Structured to meet the training needs of members of the bar in New York, California, and a number of other jurisdictions around the world, each of the twelve programs below highlights the important work of front-line advocacy organizations in the fight against modern slavery while bringing diverse perspectives on cross-border pro bono practice from leading legal academics from around the world as well as others in private practice with experience in the topics.
Check back in 2020-2021 for updates on the availability of programming in The Global Pro Bono Practitioners Program.
