Advocate's 25th anniversary year

25 years ago led by Lord Goldsmith QC, Advocate was set up by barristers, for barristers, to serve the public.

Advocate is grateful to have been part of pro bono at the Bar for the last 25 years. The expert help, advice and countless hours that have been given by so many individuals have achieved truly life changing results.

For the website pageIn light of all the Bar has achieved in those last 25 years, and all we hope the Bar will achieve in the next 25 years, this year we will celebrate the Bar’s outstanding pro bono commitment, as well as launching new initiatives with both the senior and the junior ends of the profession in mind.

Our goal is to help even more people navigate a sometimes complex and overwhelming legal system and we hope to you will join us in helping to make the next 25 years even more successful than the last 25!

We have created a short form to make it possible for you to tell us your story.

We would love to hear about the impact that you have seen pro bono work have on either the people and communities you have worked with, or on your own career.
