iProbono invites application for pro bono panels of lawyers in Maharashtra, West Bengal and Karnataka to represent disadvantaged individuals and civil society organisations.
About the Organisation
iProbono's mission is to enable people to access their rights in pursuit of a just society. In 2015, iProbono constituted panels of criminal and civil advocates for pro bono legal services in the Supreme Court & the Delhi High Court and in 2018 for low bono legal services in various District Courts. Since then, lawyers have provided quality legal representation to hundreds of disadvantaged individuals while building a culture of pro bono in the legal profession. This year, iProbono is launching its latest initiative: Panels of motivated lawyers in Maharashtra, West Bengal and Karnataka willing to do pro bono/low bono legal work to help secure justice for vulnerable individuals and low-income communities.
