Bofill Mir & Álvarez Jana joins the Pro Bono Challenge 2019-05-06 · BMAJ
Senior associate Jorge Barrera will lead the legal team working on the case.

Pro Bono

We are very happy to be part of the Desafío Pro Bono (Pro Bono Challenge), an annual contest organized by Chile’s Fundación Pro Bono (Pro Bono Foundation) that gives law students an opportunity to work on real-life cases with the support and resources of major law firms in order to develop long-term, replicable solutions to important social issues.

It is the first time that BMAJ has been involved in a Desafío Pro Bono project, and over the next six months senior associate Jorge Barrera and two students from the Universidad Andrés Bello will lead a team to work on their project to provide legal support to healthcare facilities and their elderly patients who have been discharged from the hospital but who have no home or family to return to. The project will be carried out principally at the San José de Maipo Hospital, and the aim is to create a formal protocol that can be replicated in other healthcare establishments.

On 2 May 2019, the team visited the San José de Maipo Hospital to understand the specific needs of the institution and to formally establish a framework for the team for the next 6 months.
