Legal Pro Bono: Facing the Future

The third LawWorks Clinics Network Conference was held online, on the 8th and 9th July, and brought together clinic coordinators, supervisors and volunteers from different organisations and specialisms as well as the wider advice sector.

This year’s conference was an opportunity to reflect on an extremely challenging year, move our focus to look ahead and help to build a strong pro bono community that continues to deliver much needed services in the 'new normal' future.
