Celebrating Our Pro Bono Ambassadors: Colm Nugent, Hardwicke

In the spirit of Volunteers Week, we're celebrating our fantastic pro bono ambassadors. These are the barristers who not only dedicate a generous amount of time and expertise to fighting access to justice, but encourage others in their chambers to do the same. We couldn't do the work we do without our volunteers - the whole Advocate team is incredibly grateful for all the effort they put in.
