Returning to work after recovering from Coronavirus, it was very gratifying to find out that BPP University Legal Advice Clinic has been shortlisted in this year’s LawWorks Awards, in the category of Best Contribution by a Pro Bono Clinic.

Commenting on the awards shortlist, Alasdair Douglas, the Chair of LawWorks, said:

“Congratulations to all those shortlisted. We received a high number of inspiring nominations, highlighting the breadth, depth and impact of pro bono. I would like to thank all those who were nominated and also the judges for giving their time and working so hard to choose the shortlist and winners.

These Awards acknowledge and celebrate the commitment of law firms, from their senior management to their trainees and administrative staff, and others who volunteer their time and expertise to improve the lives of others.”

Unlike last year’s virtual award ceremony, the winners will be announced at an event at the Law Society, Chancery Lane, London on 7th December (which will also be livestreamed). The guest speaker for the awards is the Rt Hon Harriet Harman MP QC, a solicitor, a former Solicitor General, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the House of Commons, and currently Chair of the Joint Committee on Human Rights.

We are up against stiff competition from:

  • Anglia Ruskin University Law Clinic
  • Dads House Family Law Clinic
  • The Student Legal Advice Centre, University of Derby
  • University of South Wales Legal Advice Clinic
  • Whitechapel Legal Advice Clinic

But we are keeping our fingers crossed.  Regardless of the outcome, being shortlisted is a major achievement and is a reflection on the hard work of our students, the brilliant support that we receive from external supervisors and the dedication of my colleagues in the Clinics Team at BPP.
