"There is a weekly clinic that everyone can volunteer for, alongside various committees to raise money for our charity of the year, where you can get involved in helping to organise a variety of events."
Second year trainee, London
"Pro bono is a big part of the firm; each employee has a 'Nabarro day', an extra paid day where you can do something voluntary of your choice within the community. You are encouraged to utilise this day. There are always bike rides, runs, bake sales and other charity competitions to get involved in."
First year trainee, London
"I myself have not undertaken any pro bono work, but I know that there is a regular scheme within the firm."

"I have been involved with the LawWorks legal clinic at St Luke's; offering legal advice to those who do not otherwise have access to it. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with pro bono."
First year trainee, London
"I have found that the Sheffield office has very little in the way of pro bono work, whereas the London office has a legal advice clinic that trainees can get involved in, so I would like more opportunities for pro bono firm wide."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"At the firm we have dedicated volunteering and fundraising committees who work tirelessly to provide monthly and annual events as well as new initiatives. We work closely with local and national charities, and I know that the London office offers free legal advice at a clinic near Islington."

First year trainee, London
"The firm is involved in a lot of pro bono work. There is a weekly pro bono clinic which fee earners volunteer at."
Second year trainee, London
"I think the London office is good at pro bono, but there is not an equivalent programme in Sheffield. It's something I would be interested in getting involved with if it were there."
First year trainee, Sheffield
