Entrevista / Leaders League
Founded in 2015, the Centro Mexicano Pro Bono is dedicated to providing legal advice to the most vulnerable sectors of the country through an extensive network of companies and law firms that comprise it. In this interview, its executive director, Ivette Montero, tells us about the projects they have been carrying out and the challenges Mexico still faces.
Leaders League. What is the Mexican Pro Bono Center and what are its activities?
Ivette Montero. It is a non-profit civil society organization dedicated to managing pro bono work in our country, Mexico. We function as a liaison between those who are in need of legal help and lawyers from law firms or companies who are willing to help for free. We also look for public interest opportunities where we can present collaboration projects with lawyers in different areas, whether public policy or public interest studies, including at the Latin American level with the pro bono network of the Americas.
