After another tough year, we want to celebrate the boldest and brightest of the pro bono community. Those who have truly gone above and beyond for those they helped; who made changes to the law or for the single parent who got financial security for their children; who saved a person their job or an entire community their public space. 

Whatever pro bono work has impressed you this year, we want to hear about it. 

Please nominate your friends, colleagues, mentors, or counsel to show them how much their work is appreciated and join us in celebrating the extraordinary achievements across the Bar throughout England and Wales. As we celebrate 25 years of Advocate, we hope this year’s Bar Pro Bono Awards will be bigger and better than ever! 

This year the awards would not be possible without the generous support of our headline sponsor, LexisNexis.
