The Pro Bono Society is a new society which focuses on raising money and awareness for legal charities.
To achieve this the society will be running social events such as pub crawls, pub quizzes and joint events with other societies. We will also be running skills based workshops to improve our member’s skills with interviewing clients, conducting legal research and presenting complex legal issues to laypeople. While these skills will be aimed at law students, we hope to see a diverse membership as these are valuable and transferable skills.
The society hopes to work with many legal charities such as Lawyers Without Borders which will give our members a chance to apply these skills and take part in projects with real life consequences.
