Planning an event in 2023?

Thank you for getting involved in Pro Bono Week by planning an event! We are really looking forward to hearing from organisations in the legal profession, charities and law schools, which are planning events, whether they’re invitation only or open to everyone to attend.

This year’s three themes are:

  • Changing lives through pro bono: How and why lawyers and law students across the UK transform lives through pro bono, including celebrating inspiring examples of pro bono and exploring the business case for legal volunteering.
  • Maximising the impact of pro bono: An opportunity to think about how to measure pro bono and to maximise its impact through, for example, collaborative projects responding to crises; focussing early advice on debt or housing; partnerships with the healthcare sector; incorporating evaluation into projects.
  • Pro bono within ESG: from climate to sustainable development: Pro bono will be explored as a pillar of an Environmental, Social, and Governance strategy, including how lawyers can help tackle the climate crisis, and how the Sustainable Development Goals can be championed.
