Law firm partners know that pro bono is key to improving access to justice, but developing a strong practice can be a challenge. Every year, Latin Lawyer partners with the Cyrus R Vance Center for International Justice to conduct a survey to measure the progress of this development across the region’s legal markets, share best practices and celebrate the achievements of the practitioners leading the way.
