Pro Bono Activity

 

We place our deep knowledge of the legal challenges of the third sector at the service of the community. Our work with the community has as its goal to promote and facilitate access to legal organisations, education and the obtainment of necessary resources. To this end, we make pro bono legal services available, we share knowledge and other resources with a view to supporting our partner organisations with the aim of obtaining a positive and sustainable social impact.

 

We actively encourage our teams to get involved in community work. We dedicate our time and resources to promoting voluntary work within the wider community and to encouraging our lawyers to be part of this effort to the benefit of individuals and institutions in need.

Justiça para Todos Programme

 

The project Justiça para [email protected], is an initiative of the Forum Estudante magazine aims to promote legal literacy in secondary education, awakening interest in issues such as Justice and Law. The programme consists of the simulation of trials, allowing student participants to analyse concrete cases and to take on the roles of defence and prosecution.

 

“The project Justiça para [email protected] started around 10 years ago (…) and this project has always been considered an instrument for the promotion of democratic values through education for Justice and Human Rights, directed towards young people, through the simulation of court practice, culminating in a simulation of law court trials.

Abreu Advogados has taken on a leading role: contributing to the updating and/or creation of new “cases” to judge, namely in the drafting of components of the case for the Project Manual; mobilising lawyers that make themselves available on a voluntary basis to guide and support the participating teams.”
