Impact Project

This project is focused on highlighting and uncovering best practice within impact evaluation of pro bono.

Launched in 2024 alongside the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) this project seeks to work with and support pro bono charities to strengthen the way they describe and measure the impact and outcomes of legal pro bono, as distinct from the impact of free legal advice more broadly, based on an improved understanding of best practice and key stakeholder priorities.

The team assigned to this project is working with voices across the sector to ensure the project has practical outputs which are of broad benefit and which will enable the growth of pro bono nationally. Anyone interested to participate in the project should contact
