What is National Pro Bono Week?

National Pro Bono Week is an annual week to recognise the contribution lawyers make, free-of-charge, to many people and organisations in need of legal advice who otherwise would not be able to afford it.  It is currently in it sixteenth year.

It supports and promotes the pro bono legal advice carried out by solicitors, barristers and chartered legal executives throughout the year and provides thought leadership on pro bono topics through a series of events run across England and Wales throughout the week.
