Join us tomorrow for an interactive workshop designed to help NGOs access free legal support. TrustLaw is the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s free global pro bono legal service that connects the best lawyers in the world to NGOS and social enterprises working to create social and environmental change.

In partnership with the Swiss law firms Froriep and Sigma legal, we invite you to join a legal education workshop, giving NGOs and social enterprises the opportunity to speak directly with lawyers about common legal issues faced in the not-for-profit sector. Lawyers at the workshop will guide participants through some of the sections of TrustLaw’s Legal Health Check, a unique online tool designed for NGOs and social enterprises to help them identify priority legal issues.

The event will also feature the launch of a new structuring guide written by Julie Wynne (Froriep) and Vincent Pfammater (Sigma legal) to help philanthropists and social entrepreneurs in Switzerland decide which legal structure to adopt for new and growing social enterprises. This is the latest in TrustLaw's series of structuring guides, helping innovators all over the world to increase their social impact.
