The Case for Pro Bono
Gabriela Christian-Hare discusses why is it beneficial to do pro bono work; Australia's National Pro Bono Target; and how the Australian Pro Bono Centre can support setting up and maintaining a pro bono practice and get involved.
"The legal profession is a profession, and not a business. Its members have a duty to temper the pursuit of individual self-interest; and they have a collective obligation to do their best to make legal services available to needy peoply. Collectivley, this is a matter of duty, not generosity."
Gabriela Christian-Hare is the CEO of the Australian Pro Bono Centre. Gabriela has over two decades of experience working in leadership, strategy development, legal, policy, stakeholder management, fundraising and business development across Sydney, London, Tokyo, Jerusalem, Damascus and Ankara.
