Pro Bono Week 2018

Pro Bono Week will take place this year from 22 to 27 October 2018. It provides an opportunity to encourage and recognise pro bono i.e the voluntary contribution of lawyers in giving free legal help to those in need.
This year, Pro Bono Week is organised under the coordination of the National Pro Bono Centre to coincide with the global celebration of pro bono that takes place every October across a dozen countries around the world

In 2018 there will be two consecutive weeks, starting with pro bono and moving onto wider justice and rule of law issues. Pro Bono Week will be followed by Justice Week (29 October to 2 November), a new initiative organised by the Law Society, Bar Council and CILEx.

The two weeks are complimentary:

- Pro Bono Week provides a spotlight on pro bono (voluntary legal help). The primary audience continues to be the legal profession, law students and the pro bono/advice sector.

- Justice Week covers the broader topic of justice and rule of law (of which pro bono is one part). It aims to engage a much wider audience and to encourage public and political debate.

We encourage everyone to take part in both weeks, for example by organising or attending events, publishing research or statistics, or sending out communications including through social media.
