As part of the Pro Bono Week Ireland 2023, PILA will organise an NGO Pitch event, taking place online on Tuesday 21 November from 1pm - 2pm.
The objective of the event is to connect Pro Bono Pledge Ireland Signatories that have committed to doing pro bono work with NGOs and civil society organisations that have projects in need of legal expertise.
Representatives from civil society organisations will have the opportunity to introduce themselves to Pledge Signatories, which include over 50 law firms across Ireland. During the 10-minute pitch, representatives of selected NGOs, charities, social enterprises or other civil society groups should provide an overview of their organisation and articulate their unmet legal needs. Following each pitch, Pledge Signatories will have the opportunity to ask any questions which will help them decide whether they can form a long-term relationship with the NGO and offer pro bono legal assistance. PILA will facilitate the introduction between the civil society representatives and the legal practitioners who wish to develop an ongoing relationship after the event.
