National Pro Bono Week 2017 what junior lawyers are doing

National Pro Bono Week (NPBW) celebrates the pro bono work undertaken by the legal profession and is a major event in the legal year.

Not only does it showcase the work being done by the profession and the impact that work is having on the community, but it also gives those who have not yet been involved in pro bono work the chance to learn about the various schemes and how they too can get involved in providing pro bono services.

The JLD would like to use the opportunity of this year’s NPBW (6 – 11 November) to promote the value of pro bono work to junior lawyers and to showcase some examples of the current pro bono projects being undertaken by junior lawyers across the country. The JLD thank Ronald Leung of Dentons, Nick Gore of Carter Thomas Solicitors and the junior lawyers at DLA Piper  for their contributions.
