Agenda

Taproot Foundation has partnered up with TrustLaw, the global legal pro bono program of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, for a webinar on how charities and social enterprises can access their network of law firms 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 that affect social enterprises and NGOs that you can seek assistance with
  • 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 help their organization with. 

There will be time for Q&A at the end of the presentation!


Access to this webinar and other Taproot Foundation programs is completely free of cost.
