Pro Bono Québec, in partnership with Access Pro Bono of British Columbia, Pro Bono Law Alberta, Pro Bono Law Ontario and Pro Bono Law Saskatchewan will host the upcoming 4th National Pro Bono Conference in Montreal, Quebec on November 1st and 2nd, 2012.
The 4th National Pro Bono Conference, "Pro Access - Pro Justice - Pro Bono" will provide a national forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas concerning pro bono legal service provision. It will combine plenary sessions that address major issues and themes related to pro bono culture and practice, and breakout sessions that take a "nuts and bolts" approach to various aspects of developing pro bono projects and delivering pro bono services. This two-day event will build on the successes of the Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto conferences, held in 2010, 2008 and 2006 respectively.
This year's Conference will bring together legal practitioners, the judiciary, the voluntary sector and academia from Canada, the United States and abroad to share ideas and best practices in pro bono legal services, to forge new pro bono partnerships, and to explore challenging issues that still lie ahead in the pro bono sphere.
The two-day event will feature a "Welcome Reception" for all attendees, speakers and special guests on the evening of Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 prior to the Conference. The National Pro Bono Conference Banquet and Awards Ceremony will be held on the evening of November 2nd, 2012 at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Quebec.
