Press Release - Legalex are delighted to announce new charity partnership with LawWorks and the Bar Pro Bono Unit

 

This year Legalex, the innovation show for legal professionals, is partnering with LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) and the Bar Pro Bono Unit – two charities which enable access to justice through legal volunteering. Legalex will take place at ExCeL London on 21st and 22nd of March 2018 and this year Legalex is proud to support these two charities to help raise awareness of their vital work and to encourage donations. The charities will be attending the show and hoping to raise funds at the event to support their pro bono work.

Legalex is the UK’s leading event for law firms and legal professionals who are looking for professional development and business growth.  Legalex will be packed with the most innovative products and services from 200 cutting-edge exhibitors, expert advice from 150 industry leading seminars, unlimited networking opportunities, and innovative ideas from top experts in the industry.

For the first time in 2018 Legalex will be running alongside Legal Cyber Security Expo, the UK’s leading event for legal and IT professionals to find the tools and resources needed to protect sensitive data from the threat of cyber attack and data breaches.

LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono group) and the Bar Pro Bono Unit are the official charities of Legalex. LawWorks works to connect volunteer solicitors with people in need of legal advice, who are not eligible for legal aid and cannot afford to pay and with the not-for-profit organisations that support them.  The Bar Pro Bono Unit helps to find pro bono legal assistance and representation from volunteer barristers working across all areas of law and at all courts and tribunals in England and Wales, for those unable to afford it and unable to access legal aid.

Together, the Legalex, LawWorks and Bar Pro Bono Unit teams look forward to welcoming you to the ExCeL on the 21st and 22nd of March for the event.  Free tickets to attend can be registered for via www.legalex.co.uk and don’t forget to visit the charities on Stand 174 to show your support for pro bono!
