ISLP-UK Director Susan Hazeldine chaired the ROLE UK: PILnet Global Forum 2017 Panel Discussion on ‘Pro Bono, Rule of Law and International Development’ at the recent PILnet Conference.
Pro Bono and International Development go hand in hand to achieve a number of key outcomes: ensuring development is just, accountable and working towards a fairer society, tackling human rights at source and working towards Sustainable Development Goal implementation/realisation.
On the panel discussing their views and how their organisations contribute to the topic area were Catherine Flew (ROLE UK), Joanna Whiteman (Equal Rights Trust), Tom Dunn (Clifford Chance), Rebecca Perlman (Herbert Smith Freehills/African Commercial Law Foundation). The audience, of course, contributed with questions and comments too.
As a result of the discussion (and impressing both panellists and audience members alike with her judicious use of a flipchart) Susan combined and displayed ‘A Baker’s Dozen: How Law Firms Could Do International Development Work Well’.
