"I have helped at legal advice centres and been fundraising for children's charities. There is plenty more on offer."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm is definitely committed to pro bono work. Many programmes run concurrently and the firm supports lawyers who are intensively involved, it is possible to bill hours for some pro bono."
Second year trainee, Brussels
"There's something for everyone. I was given the opportunity to draft a memo advising a national committee writing a new constitution, to support PILPG (one of our long standing pro bono clients). It was one of the most rewarding things I've had the chance to do, but was also quite nerve-racking to have such a high level of responsibility."
First year trainee, London
"I have worked on some contract reviews for a major pro bono client and drafted letters for another pro bono client and I regularly use my volunteer day."
First year trainee, London
"Pro bono is treated as any other billable client once work is accepted and counts towards chargeable hours. I have worked on a range of exciting pro bono work in the office and have contributed at our advice centre in Bethnal Green on two occasions."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm works on a wide range of pro bono projects. I have recently worked on background research for the drafting committee behind a new constitution in Yemen."
Second year trainee, London
"There are regularly emails being sent around asking for help on pro bono matters, and people are always encouraged to work on these matters if they have no client work on. I have worked on a lawyers in schools project, updating presentations to be given in schools."
