For the public good
Pro bono work is about more than last-minute representations on behalf of death-row inmates. Yasmin Waljee explains how lawyers with City firms are making a huge difference to the lives of ordinary people in the local community
The pro bono philosophy is a very simple idea and one that we should all be proud to be associated with. In a demanding and competitive environment like the City, pro bono work can help to reconnect us with a community that we are often removed from. It can also address a human need to assist others left otherwise uncatered for. Pro bono allows us to pass on something of real value and to remember the higher ethos of why we became lawyers.
