Pro Bono Week 2021 Launch panel debate: past, present and future

Charity & Causes

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

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 hope you can join us in person or online for what promises to be an fascinating evening.
