THE 41ST ITALIAN PRO BONO ROUNDTABLE AND A SEMINAR ON THE ROLE OF THE THIRD SECTOR IN THE NATIONAL RESILIENCE AND RECOVERY PLAN

The 41st edition of the Italian Pro Bono Roundtable will take place on Wednesday 27 April 2022 at the Rome offices of law firm Gianni & Origoni, online and in presence, followed by the seminar entitled "Together towards the Italy of tomorrow. PNRR and the Third Sector".

The Roundtable, from 2 to 3 p.m., will be an opportunity to get to know the new NGOs that have joined our network, to present the activities that Pro Bono Italia has carried out in recent months for humanitarian emergencies and to explore the new role of fundraising together with Nicola Bedogni, President of ASSIF Associazione Italiana Fundraising.

After the roundtable, from 3 to 4 p.m., there will be a seminar on the National Resilience and Recovery Plan and the Third Sector, in partnership with I-Com and The Good Lobby Italia, which will explore the contribution that the non-profit sector can bring to institutions in the management of the Recovery Plan funds.

Last but not least, the annual meeting of Pro Bono Italia will take place at 12 noon. We invite PBI members to attend by sending the confirmation of their attendance (even remotely) or their proxy to segretario@probonoitalia.org by Tuesday 26 April.

PRO BONO ITALIA FOR HUMANITARIAN EMERGENCIES

We firmly believe that pro bono is a fundamental asset for human rights protection: in light of this we promptly took action, involving the lawyers of our network, for providing free legal assistance to Afghan and Ukrainian refugees and non-profit organisations on a range of requests (including family reunification, political asylum, or other forms of international protection) and producing flyers and videos with legal content, collaborating with pro bono networks in other European and foreign countries, and helping several associations in offering immediate assistance to individuals and families in need.

LET’S MAKE PRO BONO CULTURE AND ACTIVITIES GROW: JOIN PRO BONO ITALIA!

If you are a lawyer or a law firm and you wish to do professional volunteer work for non-profit organisations and individuals in need, join Pro Bono Italia.

Pro bono is not just a legal practice, but a genuine choice of lawyers who dedicate part of their time and resources to solving cases which would otherwise go unheard. Doing pro bono work allows not only to provide concrete and tangible help, but also to grow from a professional, human and ethical perspective.

Pro Bono Italia is the first association of lawyers which promotes pro bono culture in Italy. In 2017, we were 13 founding members and we count 50 associates to date, including Law Firms and individual professionals. Thanks to our network, we have offered pro bono help in over 400 requests for legal assistance. Moreover, since 1st January 2022, we activated our own clearinghouse, pairing the one active within CSVnet for handling pro bono requests even more quickly and efficiently.

Joining Pro Bono Italia means publicly affirming the social function of the legal profession and contributing to providing the association with means and resources to promptly respond to the legal protection needs of people and non-profit associations in need
