Agenda

Taproot Foundation has partnered with TrustLaw, the global legal pro bono program of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, for a webinar on how nonprofits and social enterprises can access their network of law firms and in-house counsels for free legal assistance. 

During this 1-hour webinar, experts from TrustLaw will cover: 

  • An introduction to TrustLaw and the range of legal resources offered through their programs 
  • Common legal issues affecting social good organizations that they can receive immediate guidance on navigating 
  • Tips and tools for accessing legal help as a member of the TrustLaw NGO community 


Webinar attendees will gain an understanding of the legal issues and protections that can save their organization time, resources, and headache in the future, as well as a greater awareness of the legal issues that TrustLaw can support. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the presentation! 


Access to this webinar and Taproot Plus, Taproot's online platform for business pro bono, is completely free of cost for nonprofits, fiscally sponsored social good organizations, public schools, and small businesses.
