Spotlight on Social Welfare – Slaughter and May

November 9, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Join Slaughter and May for a discussion on social welfare and how pro bono can support individuals to access justice.

The panel of speakers work and volunteer with services users on the front line and we will be discussing the issues the people they support face such as homelessness, food poverty or trouble navigating the social care system and how pro bono advice can make a difference.

Whether you are a pro bono practitioner working in-house, at a private practice or a law student starting out your career come along or join virtually to find out more about the issues at hand and ask any questions you may have.


  • Holly Ware, Partner, Slaughter and May and Trustee at RCJ Advice
  • James Sandbach, London Development Manager, Citizens Advice
  • Kari Gerstheimer, CEO, Access Social Care
  • Nick Reed, Advice and Engagement Worker, Margins Project

For those attending in person there will be a chance to network over breakfast.
