The 19th Pro Bono Week takes place this week from 2 to 6 November 2020, recognising and supporting the voluntary contribution made by lawyers across the UK in giving free legal help to those in need.
The overarching theme of Pro Bono Week 2020 is “Pro bono: Through the pandemic and beyond“.
In Bristol we are celebrating Pro Bono with an event on 5th November.
You are invited to join the Bristol Pro Bono Group to mark Pro Bono Week 2020!
BBG is passionate about access to justice.We encourage lawyers to work with local universities and community groups to deliver pro bono advice to indivi
duals who don’t have access to legal advice. We also work collaboratively to identify not-for-profit organisations working in the public interest who need legal assistance.
Join us on 5 November (5pm – 6pm) to understand how our members are working together to increase engagement in pro bono projects in the South-West and to learn about how lawyers can really make a difference in their communities.
The session will include contributions from:
- Bristol Law Centre
- Osborne Clarke
- Simmons & Simmons
- University of Law
- University of the West of England
