The Chambers Pro Bono Framework is an opportunity for all Chambers in England and Wales to establish their commitment to undertaking pro bono work and improving access to justice.
As the Bar’s national pro bono charity, Advocate wants to make it possible for every Chambers to be part of the solution and to help us effectively address the growing need to support individuals in desperate need of legal assistance, who cannot obtain legal aid or afford counsel.
By signing up to The Framework, Chambers commits to four actions within a calendar year, these are:
(1) Appoint Pro Bono Champions
(2) Action pro bono work as a Chambers
(3) Organise a seminar on pro bono
(4) Report on the pro bono done
