Pro Bono Week will take place this year from 2 to 6 November 2020, offering an opportunity to recognise and support the voluntary contribution made by lawyers across the UK in giving free legal help to those in need.
In this year of unprecedented challenges, for both the voluntary and legal sectors, the role of pro bono legal assistance has never been more important. Celebrating 19 years of Pro Bono Week, 2020 will therefore provide a timely occasion to highlight and explore the role of pro bono in light of the pandemic.
With the potential that social distancing will still be in place, a mixture of online and in-person events are being planned.
Law firms, chambers, legal societies, charities, in-house lawyers, universities and law schools are encouraged to start planning how to use Pro Bono Week 2020, whether through private or public events, or through internal or wider communications.
