3 March 2014


The inaugural TrustLaw Index of Pro Bono is now open for entries. The index will look at how much pro bono work law firms are undertaking on a country-by-country basis around the world, and identify global trends in the pro bono market place.

The first of its kind globally, this tool will be invaluable to help spread the practice of pro bono by highlighting successful pro bono programmes and demonstrate the amount of pro bono being done around the world.

The index is an initiative of TrustLaw Connect, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono service. Law firms in every country across the world are invited to contribute to the index.

The survey is here. Please complete it before Friday 4 April 2014. The results and analysis of the survey will be compiled in the TrustLaw Index of Pro Bono and launched in May 2014.
