The Pro Bono Recognition List, established under the sponsorship of the Attorney General’s Pro Bono Committee and endorsed by the Lady Chief Justice, enjoys the support of the Law Society, Bar Council, and all major pro bono legal organisations. It celebrates the invaluable contributions of individual lawyers from firms and organizations of all sizes who provide legal assistance to those in need.

UCL Faculty of Laws is deeply committed to being an inclusive law school, striving to provide equal opportunities for all students and ensuring access to justice for the wider community. The work carried out by the Centre for Access to Justice and the UCL Integrated Legal Advice Clinic (UCL iLAC) is a testament to this commitment.
