The Solicitor General and I have many tasks but few give us as much pleasure as our association with the legal profession's pro bono work. Historically and today the giving of free legal advice by lawyers to those who otherwise would not have access to legal help, has always been accepted as part and parcel of their responsibility to society. Whether in advice or community centres, supporting other voluntary activities, in schools, international work, or in the courts, the provision of and enthusiasm for pro boon work is a feature of which the legal profession should be justifiably proud.
I am very grateful to my Domestic and International Pro Bono Committees for the work they do to coordinate and stimulate the profession's efforts. In particular I congratulate all involved in the recently founded National Pro Bono Centre the establishment of which is a world first and a major achievement in itself.
I also applaud everyone involved with events in National Pro Bono Week to mark and promote your pro bono commitment and I wish the legal profession continuing success in this commendable work.
The Attorney General
