2015

"I have been involved in Christmas shoe box campaigns, fundraising and also Christmas jumper days."
Second year trainee, Sheffield
"There are pro bono opportunities but, I feel that they could benefit from a central focus driven by senior members of the firm. Most of the best opportunities come from people who 'do it themselves' in many ways."
Second year trainee, London
"There are pro bono opportunities available if you seek them out, but it feels like having time to do them is more of an issue. That said, as a trainee I find that you do tend to have more time."
First year trainee, London

2014

"The firm assists with a couple of pro bono clinics and they are a great chance for trainees to practise their client interviewing and client care skills."
Second year trainee, London
"There are activities you can get involved in, and it is up to each person to put themselves forward and suggest the projects they want to go for. Pro bono is encouraged but there isn't pressure to do so."
First year trainee, London
