Brand new Law Society award for Excellence in Pro Bono – enter now:
Entries are now open for a brand new category recognising Excellence in Pro Bono as part of the legal profession’s flagship awards ceremony.
The awards recognise the very best in innovation and practice across the whole legal profession, offering a chance to acknowledge the exceptional work of individuals, while also applauding the collective achievements of teams and legal practices.
Whether your pro bono work is for clients in your local community or NGOs through a global partnership - from law shops to test cases, clinics to training - we are looking for examples of innovation and best practice. Whoever your client and whatever the vehicle, show us how your freely given legal expertise has promoted the public interest and developed your business and people.
This website has been developed in order to promote legal pro bono work. We hope that it will become a key resource for legal professionals, advice agencies, law students and those involved in delivering legal education. The aim is to provide a medium for sharing information and resources and to develop an online community of like minded pro bono providers. At the same time we hope that we will be able to map the vast amount of pro bono work that takes place across the country.
For members of the public we are providing news and resources which we hope will be of interest. Included is information about how to find legal help and a directory of agencies who may be able to offer advice and assistance.
We hope that the site will prove useful and interesting to you. However, it needs and welcomes your contributions. With these it should become a vibrant and ever-changing site and one which aids the development of a dynamic pro bono community.
