Not Remotely Legal? – Legal Experts share insights on key issues arising from COVID-19

Posted on 12 Nov 2020

The Public Interest Law Alliance, a project of the Free Legal Advice Centres), TrustLaw (Thomson Reuters Foundation) A&L Goodbody, Arthur Cox, and McCann Fitzgerald are pleased to invite NGOs and social enterprises to participate in Pro Bono Week Ireland 2020. Run in conjunction with European Pro Bono Week, it celebrates the role played by volunteer lawyers in supporting civil society and those in need. During the week, events will take place all across Europe – as well as in Ireland – to highlight and promote pro bono culture. By bringing together various stakeholders in pro bono culture – lawyers, law students, non-profits, human rights activists, academics, and businesses – Pro Bono Week seeks to start conversations on the overarching theme of this year: the role that pro bono culture can play in responding to global crises.

Our NGO event "Not Remotely Legal? – Experts share insights on key issues arising from COVID-19" will take place on Tuesday, 24 November, 10am-11am via Zoom

This event will signpost key legal issues for NGOs and social enterprises, particularly those novel and emerging legal developments in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be a particular focus on the practical matters NGOs and social enterprises should consider in the areas of data protection, funding contracts and employment law.
