Pro Bono Week

Pro Bono Week 2023 involved more than 60 events taking place across the UK, with an estimated 3,000 people taking part. Last year’s events focused on the impact of pro bono on the lives of members of the public. They also highlighted how much young lawyers across the profession value pro bono work.

Data from 2023 shows that 49% of barristers undertook pro bono in the past year.

Last year saw the launch of the first ‘Guide to pro bono and other free advice in Scotland’ and the publication of Law Society of England and Wales case studies showing the real-life impact of pro bono by solicitors.

The organisers of Pro Bono Week 2024 have said they will reveal the themes for this year’s discussions and events in June.

Toby Brown, chair of UK Pro Bono Week, said: ‘It remains important that the legal community comes together for Pro Bono Week every November, putting a spotlight on legal pro bono and recognising those lawyers who generously volunteer their time.

‘We look forward to revealing the themes for Pro Bono Week 2024 and supporting everyone to organise their own events in the coming months.’
