Pro Bono Week 2018

Pro Bono Week took place this year from 22 to 27 October 2018. It provided 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 was 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 were two consecutive weeks, starting with pro bono and moving onto wider justice and rule of law issues. Pro Bono Week was followed by Justice Week (29 October to 2 November), a new initiative organised by the Law Society, Bar Council and CILEx.

The two weeks were complimentary:

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

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

If you took part in either week, for example by organising or attending events, publishing research or statistics, or sending out communications including through social media please do let us know.
