BiLD is the also leading for pro bono legal services that aims to grow participation and excellence in pro bono, our unique contribution to closing the justice gap and creating a more equitable and sustainable society. The Institute does provide legal advice or legal assistance, or refer individuals to pro bono lawyers. The Institute promotes and supports pro bono as an adviser, advocate, researcher, broker and resource provider. If you need information, advice or assistance in setting up a pro bono program or on any other issue related to pro bono legal assistance in Bangladesh please contact us or refer to our publications and resources. The Institute works to achieve this in three ways:
Activate new and existing pro bono legal professional by promoting awareness of pro bono legal services, providing incentives to participate and advocating for policy reform
Equip pro bono legal professionals by providing practical tools and resources and reducing barriers and constraints to pro bono participation
Connect members of the pro bono ecosystem through collaboration and best practice sharing
More information on the strategies that the Institute uses to achieve this can be found in its Strategic Plan.
