National Pro Bono Week

Emma Morgan (Student)

This week is Pro-Bono week, which promotes and supports people who provide free legal advice to those most in need. It is part of a global celebration of pro bono that takes place every year.

Students from Staffordshire University offer free legal advice to members of public as part of their law degrees, this helps prepare them for their future careers. This year SULAC students are taking part in the Law School Challenge, hoping to raise as much money as possible for Law Works and Advocate to enable Pro- Bono activities continue in the future.

This also enables the students to spread the word about the hard work and dedication they have put into their studies in order to help members of the public. The students are already well underway with their fundraising for the Law school challenge with the first event already completed and the next one being organised; the students are keen to beat last year’s total. There is also a fundraising page where you can support our cause :
