Pro Bono Week

Pro Bono Week 2014

CHANGE THE WORLD. START HERE.

Pro Bono Week is a global celebration of the pro bono ethic across all professions that use their talents to make a difference. Inspired by the American Bar Assocation's National Celebration of Pro Bono, Taproot works with partners around the globe to focus attention on the pro bono movement each year during the third week of October.

In 2013, the celebration took place in more than 10 countries. Every year, there are more and more pro bono professionals in Japan, China, Canada, Hungary, Spain, France, Germany, Singapore, Korea, and the list keeps growing. Check out Probonoweek.org to see how these global leaders are celebrating Pro Bono Week in 2014.
