Several members of New Perimeter’s pro bono team attended the 5th Asia Pro Bono Conference in Sanur, Indonesia (on the island of Bali) between August 29 and September 1. I was fortunate to be one of them. The turnout was nothing short of remarkable – over 300 participants from 30 nations! Wow!! Established by BABSEACLE, one of our key partners, the Asia Pro Bono Conference brings together legal service providers from around the globe to share ideas, participate in workshops and advance the pro bono movement in Asia.
DLA Piper/New Perimeter was a top tier organizer and sponsor, and our attorneys were front and center throughout the conference. Nicolas Patrick (London) was on the opening plenary panel and the other New Perimeter participants were speakers, moderators, and trainers in one or more of the many events and workshops that spanned the conference. Other firm attendees included Suzanna Brickman (New Perimeter, Washington DC), Claire Donse (Paris), Annette Bain (Hong Kong), Catriona Martin (Sydney), Efthimia Goudakis (Melbourne) and Mohammed Rakinul Hakim (Bangkok).
