Shireen Irani – executive director of online network for pro bono legal assistance iProbono, tells the Hindu that the “push for volunteering” at the Indian legal workplace in the last three years has evened out the number of male and female lawyers registering on her website, to volunteer.
The site is free to use for people posting pro bono work and lawyers offering help, and requires lawyers to register with basic information including areas of expertise and speaking language.
Apart from acting as a bridge where people in need and lawyers offering pro bono assistance liaise on their own terms, iProbono also assists the International Justice Mission with finding lawyers to conduct sessions on sensitising legal professionals to women victims of sex trafficking, oppression and slavery.
