As part of Advocate's 25th year anniversary, one of our goals is to look to the future of pro bono work. Who best to do that than young barristers who will be involved in shaping the future of the Bar?

Many young barristers recognise the necessity for access to justice and want to help. Through the launch of YBA, and after what has been a very hard year, Advocate wants to ensure that young barristers feel supported to take on pro bono work and help those in need.

YBA members will have the opportunity to build a network of like-minded barristers across England and Wales and across multiple areas of law, to support each other while providing access to justice and building a successful practice. 

We are so pleased to welcome the new committee members and look forward to working with you in the upcoming months! They include:
