"I am aware that the firm does do pro bono work but I have not been involved in any projects."
Second year trainee, London
"Different departments do different amounts of this work. I have only worked briefly on one case because I work in IP and there's not much pro bono work that can be done in this area."
First year trainee, London
"We do some pro bono work but the firm is more focused on non-legal charitable projects than pro bono. A few of the partners are on the boards of charities including the Royal Theatrical Support Trust, which means Sir Ian McKellen pops into the firm a couple of times a year."

"I think the pro bono work tends to be department specific. I have not been involved in any pro bono work."
First year trainee, London
"I have only worked on one. Otherwise it isn't really talked about or promoted. Not being a large firm means we don't have particularly big projects we can sign up to. I don't know if there's more opportunity as an associate, but I haven't heard much about it as a trainee."
Second year trainee, London
"Bristows has many pro bono initiatives and everyone is encouraged to participate in and get the firm involved in pro bono events. Partners are actively involved in such initiatives."
First year trainee, London
"Plenty of charity initiatives but I have not been given any opportunity for pro bono legal work as a trainee. I understand some of the partners and associates do some pro bono work."
First year trainee, London
