Earlier this month, BCSDN partnered with the Thomson Reuters Foundation through the TrustLaw Connect service. TrustLaw is the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono legal service that connects NGOs and social enterprises with the best law firms around the world willing to provide their services free of charge.
Launched in 2010, with the aim to help NGOs and social enterprises focus on their mission instead of spending resources on legal expertise, TrustLaw has grown to include over 2000 members in 180 countries. TrustLaw’s mission is to spread the practice of pro bono worldwide to drive social change, as connecting these organizations with free legal assistance enables them to run their operations more effectively, scale business, and expand into new countries.
