PROBONO.ORG IS A DYNAMIC NGO THAT WORKS WITH THE PRIVATE LEGAL PROFESSION TO PROVIDE PRO BONO LEGAL SERVICES TO THE POOR.

We harness the enormous skill, might and strength of the South African private legal profession to cases and clients that we identify. Our existence is a response to the lack of access to justice for people in South African who are unable to pay for their own private legal representation. Section 34 of our Constitution, giving everyone the right to have any dispute resolved by the application of law decided in a fair public hearing before a court, or… another independent and impartial tribunal or forum, has no meaning whatsoever, if a person is unable to afford representation. ProBono.Org has as its goal, the creation of sufficient free legal representation for all who need it.
