The launch event celebrating the 20th Pro Bono Week and exploring pro bono: past, present and future

About this event

The official launch of the 20th Pro Bono Week, recognising and supporting the voluntary contribution made by lawyers across the UK in giving free legal help to those in need. In this year of unprecedented challenges, for both the voluntary and legal sectors, pro bono legal help has never been more important.

The launch event will take place in person online, and will host a panel of speakers, exploring the past, present and future of pro bono.

We are grateful to Gray's Inn for kindly hosting the in-person element of the launch of Pro Bono Week 2021.
