Five Member Firms Selected for 2018 Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation Annual Awards

At the event, the Foundation was delighted to have the opportunity to present our 9th Annual Awards honoring Lex Mundi member law firms that have provided critical pro bono legal services to the Foundation’s clients – thereby helping to strengthen the global rule of law, support the global social entrepreneurship movement, and improve the lives of the world’s poor and disenfranchised. Our sincere thanks and congratulations go out to all five member-firm winners!
