Bezaliel Basuki Erlan, a senior associate at SSEK Legal Consultants, attended a recent discussion on how to encourage more lawyers in Indonesia to undertake pro bono work. The event was organized by Hukumonline.
In an article on the event, Bezaliel said it was important for young lawyers to be taught the importance of doing pro bono work. He pointed out, for example, that Indonesia needed lots of smart, qualified lawyers to assist the country's small and medium enterprises.
This is the third straight year that Hukumonline has hosted the Indonesia Pro Bono Roundtable.
