From the determined strength of pro bono coordinators to the collaborative efforts of law firms (played out increasingly across borders), the results of our annual pro bono survey demonstrate how pro bono is weaved into the fabric of Latin America’s legal market. The work being done around the region showcases the outstanding achievements of lawyers and clearing houses working together. Now, the challenge is to engage even more lawyers in the fight to bring access to justice to all.

The findings of our fifth joint pro bono survey provide plenty of reasons to feel positive. Pro bono appears to have turned a corner in Latin America thanks to an ever strengthening infrastructure and the greater willingness of more firms to take part. While the survey results might not show a significant uptick year on year, law firms are nevertheless making great strides in the implementation of policies needed to make pro bono more commonplace. Of course, there are challenges to overcome, such as engaging more partners in pro bono cases. However, the latest focus on high-impact cases could help achieve that, alongside producing a dramatic increase in the value of pro bono work. Rosie Cresswell reports
