Promoting pro bono

The Vance Center has had a seismic impact on the development of pro bono in Latin America. Leire Larracoechea, an integral member of the team, talks to Zach Marzouk about her contribution to creating the region’s pro bono infrastructure and her ultimate goal to replicate it in her home country, Spain.

Promoting pro bono Leire Larracoechea

In October 2016, the Cyrus R Vance Center for International Justice hosted members of leading Spanish law firms and the Madrid Bar Association in New York. They had come to the US with a view to understanding more about how to develop a pro bono clearing house in Spain. The trip came about thanks to Leire Larracoechea, a senior fellow in pro bono practice at the Vance Center, who organised the meeting, negotiating with key players and drafting the agenda. She was keen to drive the project forward as it brought her another step closer to achieving her ultimate goal: developing a pro bono clearinghouse in her home country.
