Declaração Pro Bono para as Américas

  • Data: 16/3
  • Horário: 9h às 13h
  • Local: Salão nobre da Faculdade de Direito da USP - Largo São Francisco, 95 - São Paulo

CONSIDERANDO QUE acesso à justiça é essencial á sociedades democráticas;

CONSIDERANDO QUE nem todos os membros da sociedade têm um acesso significativo às cortes e à representação legal efetiva, e isso sendo especialmente o caso para as pessoas e grupos pobres e desprivilegiados;

CONSIDERANDO QUE governos têm recursos limitados para dedicar às necessidades legais cruciais dos individuais pobres e desprivilegiados muitas vezes deixando as necessidades não atendidas;

CONSIDERANDO QUE a ausência de acesso à justiça debilita a confiança pública em instituições jurídicas e governamentais;

CONSIDERANDO QUE a profissão legal tem um papel privilegiado e está unicamente posicionada em assuntos de justiça e por conseqüência tem a obrigação, os meios, e a oportunidade de promover um justo e eqüitativo sistema legal em colaboração com o Estado e o poder judiciário;

CONSIDERANDO QUE tradições existem nas Américas e novos esforços já estão em andamento em vários países, inclusive colaborações entre Ordens de Advogados, escritórios de advocacia de interesses privados e públicos, faculdades de direito, fundações e organizações não-governamentais, para atender á essas necessidades urgentes e não atendidas;

CONSIDERANDO QUE um movimento coordenado nas Américas para promover acesso à justiça a traves de trabalho pro bono fortaleceria compromissos á democracia e serviço público na profissão jurídica;

CONSIDERANDO QUE as diferenças entre os sistemas jurídicos e as tradições dos países podem ser uma fonte de inspiração para padrões e práticas pro bono inovadoras;

NÓS, os membros da comunidade jurídica das Américas, subscritos abaixo, declaramos solenemente nosso compromisso á pro bono declarando o seguinte:

Os membros da profissão jurídica têm a obrigação de prover serviços jurídicos pro bono. Esta obrigação surge do papel e objectivo da profissão na sociedade, e de seu implícito compromisso á um sistema jurídico justo e eqüitativo.

Pro bono é derivado da frase latina pro bono público, que se refere á atos feitos “pelo bom do público”.

Por razões desta Declaração, serviços jurídicos pro bono são esses feitos sem remuneração, ou a esperança de uma remuneração, principalmente para beneficiar pessoas e grupos pobres e desprivilegiados ou as organizações que os ajuda. Isso pode incluir a representação de pessoas ou grupos de pessoas que de outra maneira não poderiam afirmar ou exercitar seus direitos como seres humanos ou obter acesso á justiça. Ademais, serviços legais pro bono também podem beneficiar às instituições cívicas, culturais ou educacionais servindo ao interesse público que de outra maneira não poderiam obter representação.

Serviços legais pro bono devem ser fornecidos com a mesma qualidade de representação fornecida á clientes pagantes.

O fornecimento efetivo de serviços legais pro bono requer cooperação entre os vários atores da profissão jurídica – inclusive Ordens de Advogados, escritórios de advocacia de interesses privados e públicos, faculdades de direito, fundações e organizações não-governamentais.

NÓS, os subscritos abaixo, cada um de acordo com nossos papeis respectivos na profissão jurídica, nos comprometemos á:

Melhorar a representação efetiva para pessoas pobres e desprivilegiados.

Realçar acesso significativo e espalhado ao sistema jurídico á pessoas e grupos que tem falta de tal acesso.

Prover, numa base pro bono, mais de 25 horas ou três dias de serviços jurídicos por cada advogado por ano, ou no caso de escritórios de advocacia ou outras instituições, uma media de mais de 25 horas por cada advogado por ano.

Fortalecer o compromisso da profissão ao fornecimento e o desenvolvimento de serviços jurídicos pro bono por meio de enfatizar sua importância e pratica na educação jurídica.

Apoiar o estabelecimento e o desenvolvimento de organizações não-governamentais dedicadas ao fornecimento de serviços jurídicos que são do interesse público.

Advogar dentro da profissão pelo reconhecimento e promoção de serviços jurídicos pro bono como parte do conceito de ética e as obrigações de um advogado.

Esta Declaração não tem como sua intenção de alterar ou por de lado nenhuma legislação, resolução ou código ético, de qualquer jurisdição já existente que seja mais favorável ao fornecimento de serviços jurídicos pro bono.
