Bar Pro Bono Awards 2018

 

In association with the Bar Council

 

 

Since 1997 the Bar Pro Bono Award has been given every year in recognition of outstanding commitment to pro bono work by a barrister or chambers. Since then pro bono has developed, broadened and grown, and it is increasingly difficult to choose one winner from a set of nominees clearly working in different areas. For 2018 we introduced nine separate categories for which nominations will be accepted in future.

The categories are:

  • Young Pro Bono Barrister of the Year, sponsored by Place Campbell
  • Junior Pro Bono Barrister of the Year, sponsored by Juriosity
  • Pro Bono QC of the Year, sponsored by Judicial & Silk (formerly 'JSB Judicial')
  • International Pro Bono Barrister of the Year
  • Employed Pro Bono Barrister of the Year
  • Pro Bono Chambers' Staff Member of the Year, sponsored by the Legal Practice Management Association
  • Pro Bono Innovation of the Year, sponsored by Lexis Nexis
  • Pro Bono Chambers of the Year
  • Lifetime Achievement in Pro Bono, the Sydney Elland Goldsmith Award
 

 

Bar Pro Bono Awards winners and nominees events

All nominees are invited to an Awards evening taking place on Wednesday 24th October 2018 at which winners of most categories will be announced.

The winner of Pro Bono Young Barrister of the Year and the 2018 winner of Lifetime Achievement in Pro Bono will be presented with their awards at this year’s Bar Conference, which takes place on Saturday 24th November 2018.
