About Us

The Centre for Asia-Pacific Pro Bono (CAPPB) is housed within the Law Council of Australia Secretariat. In July 2011, the Law Council of Australia and the International Pro Bono Advisory Group secured funding from the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department to establish a clearinghouse to coordinate requests for pro bono legal assistance from the Asia-Pacific region to Australia. The CAPPB seeks to match requests from the Asia-Pacific region for international pro bono legal assistance with Australian legal practitioners and law practices.

The CAPPB aims to:

  • Contribute to good governance and democracy
  • Assist in the development of sustainable pro bono partnerships in the Asia-Pacific
  • Promote the rule of law and access to justice in the Asia-Pacific
  • Provide Australian lawyers opportunities to offer international pro bono legal assistance
  • Build capacity and capability legal systems in the Asia-Pacific
