London Legal Walk
For 19 years, the London Legal Walk has been bringing together the legal community to support free legal advice services on the frontline. As the cost of living rises, the need for free legal help wiht debt, benefits, housing, asylum and domestic violence is now greater than ever. Thanks to the participants in the London Legal Walk, the London Legal Support Trust are able to support over 100 organisations in London and the South East each year, helping them provide more free legal advice. Every year multiple in house legal teams participate in the walk. Click here for further details.
National Pro Bono Week
Pro Bono Week offers an opportunity to recognise and support the voluntary contribution made by the legal profession across the UK in giving free legal help to those in need. Last year the In House Pro Bono Group ran a webinar on how in house lawyers and law firms can partner effectively to do pro bono. We also ran a module in our Legal Clinic 101 Series: Practical Tips when Advising at Legal Clinics.
