As clearing house membership reaches an all-time high, the institutions across the region acting as the go-between for law firms and pro bono projects are reinventing themselves, adapting to the times to provide first-class responses to those most in need. They are plugging gaps, as well as making pro bono networks more inclusive.

Steps towards greater institutionalisation demonstrate law firms are embedding a culture of pro bono among both their lawyers and wider communities. Firms that are serious about delivering access to justice are taking things to the next level, fostering higher levels of accountability within their internal processes to make sure they secure meaningful results.

Down but not out: the future for law firm offices

26 October 2020

A recent Latin Lawyer survey of more than 100 Latin American law firms indicates a significant proportion – one in five – have opted not to reopen their offices after closing earlier this year in response to the covid-19 pandemic. Those that have reopened are operating at much-reduced capacity, with safety precautions in place. Our survey highlights changing attitudes towards office life and the chief concerns partners have about remote working.

The migration train

03 February 2020

Perhaps no other image best captures the desperation of Latin America’s poorest and most vulnerable migrants than that of La bestia, a freight train route commonly used by Central American migrants to reach the US. On their journeys to new lives, people on the move in Latin America face legal uncertainty, vulnerability and alienation. This has necessitated an unprecedented need for pro bono counsel from lawyers, finds Latin Lawyer.
