Latin Lawyer-Vance Center pro bono survey now open

The Latin Lawyer and the Cyrus R Vance Center for International Justice’s annual pro bono survey is now open for submissions.

Latin Lawyer and the Vance Center’s annual pro bono survey

The findings from our latest joint survey suggest pro bono practices are taking root in Latin American law firms. More firms from a greater spread of countries are taking part, and at the same time, a slew of new clearing houses in the region and the growing reach of established initiatives promise to benefit an increasing share of the region’s disadvantaged.
