The future of pro bono – Scottish Young Lawyers’ Association

November 3, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

SYLA welcome:

Ryan Whelan, Founder of the Aberdeen Law Project, Founder of Probonoskills.com, Associate Solicitor

Rebecca Samaras, Director of Pro Bono and Clinical Legal Education at the University of Edinburgh

Jonathan Goodyear, Co-Founder of Probonoskills.com and Past Student Director of the Aberdeen Law Project

Join us for an insightful afternoon of discussion and reflection on the future of pro bono in Scotland. The 20th anniversary of Pro Bono Week will be a pivotal moment to look ahead to the next twenty years of pro bono whilst also shining a spotlight on the importance of pro bono in the legal profession.

Our speakers have vast experience in promoting access to justice and working closely with student law clinics across Scotland. Each speaker will provide an insight into their involvement with pro bono, following which, there will be an opportunity to pose your questions to the panel.

Attendees will be sent the web link on the day of the event. We will also be collating questions in advance; attendees are invited to submit any questions for the panel to mail@syla.co.uk.
