Pro bono legal charities to explore closer working
Pro bono charities LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) and Advocate (formerly the Bar Pro Bono Unit) are to explore closer working to strengthen their impact
Discussions are at an early stage, and the two charities will be consulting with the Law Society, the Bar Council, and other stakeholders ...
The Chair of LawWorks, Alasdair Douglas, and the Hon Mr Justice Robin Knowles, the Chair of Advocate, said:
“This is a good time to explore how LawWorks and Advocate can build on their achievements and maximise impact going forward. Trustees from the two charities have met to begin the process of exploring options and opportunities for closer working. We feel it important to be open about this process, as we are keen to invite ideas and contributions.”
