National Pro Bono Week
Pro Bono Week offers an opportunity to recognise and supports the voluntary contribution made by lawyers across the UK in giving free legal help to those in need.
Over the years our pro bono work has been directed towards three main areas: giving charities specialist legal advice; supporting community organisations that address access to justice and assist individuals in need; and delivering legal education projects. Using our legal skills in this way makes a tangible contribution to the UN Global Goals and we are grateful for everyone’s efforts and contributions.
Our core capability as a law firm is our legal knowledge. Pro bono is an integral part of our culture and enhances our other responsible business areas. Our pro bono work demonstrates a strong commitment to social mobility and citizenship through our relationship with our immediate communities, but it also spans the globe as we put our legal skills on the front line for our wider ecological environment and other charities making a tangible difference in the world around us. Using our legal skills to drive forward the UN’s Global Goals is one of the most valuable ways we can contribute.
