ACC Hong Kong’s Pro Bono Legal Services Committee is pleased to invite you to the Inaugural ACC Hong Kong Pro Bono Legal Services Stakeholder Summit.
Recognising that interest in pro bono work among the in-house community has been growing, the Association of Corporate Counsel Hong Kong (ACC HK), is taking an active lead in facilitating awareness and opportunities for delivery of pro bono legal services by inhouse counsel.
This inaugural summit will explore areas of mutual cooperation where our common goal is to promote more equal access to justice for those in need in Hong Kong.
In addition to serving as a forum for an exchange of ideas on pro bono work by inhouse counsel, we hope to foster strong connections across the Hong Kong legal fraternity and community stakeholders to minimize duplication of effort given scarce resources. Please click here for the provisional agenda.
The Summit will be followed by a casual dinner to allow for continued discussions and networking in a more informal atmosphere.
We’re anticipating 20 – 30 representatives may attend including from the following stakeholder groups, but if you’re aware of other key organisations not listed, please let Sharyn or Davyd know at firstname.lastname@example.org Subject to venue limitations we’d like to bring together as many interest groups as possible.
