The SADC-LA is excited to introduce the SADCLA Pro Bono Forum in Tanzania. The pro bono forum aims at promoting pro bono initiatives in the region through #BeyondBilling Campaign and, further, to create a pro bono network of lawyers, NGOs and individuals working on issues of regional integration, poverty eradication through economic development, access to justice, peace and security and human rights.
The creation of SADCLA pro bono forum was resolved by the SADCLA AGM held in Dar es Salaam Tanzania in August 2016. The inaugural SADC-LA Pro Bono Forum was held on 15th and 16th August 2018, in Maputo, Mozambique. The 2019 Pro bono Forum has just been concluded at Johannesburg, South Africa on 20th and 21st November 2019. In 2019, SADC-LA Pro bono Initiative has also conducted pro bono country-specific consultative meetings in Malawi and Zimbabwe
A SADCLA pro bono consultative meeting has been scheduled in Tanzania on Wednesday, 4th December 2019, from 9.00am to 12.30pm, at TLS Headquarters, Chato Street Regent Estate, Dar es Salaam. This is to invite members of TLS interested in pro bono work join the SADCLA pro bono database and register for the pro bono consultative meeting.
