To members of Association of Bristol Law Society
Working in partnership with the LawWorks & Attorney General Student Pro Bono Awards 2022, The Access to Justice Foundation is delighted to announce that nominations for the Access to Justice Foundation Award 2022 are now open!
The Access to Justice Foundation is a national charity which works to increase the availability of free legal advice. It does this by raising funds and distributing them to organisations that provide free specialist legal support to communities who are most in need and at risk.
Our work means that thousands of people across the country are diverted from crisis, able to keep a roof over their head, remain in paid employment, avoid mental health crisis, and experience positive life changes.
This award recognises the vital importance of the support that free legal advice agencies receive from future legal professionals and their training providers. The Foundation is proud to celebrate the hard work of students and academics in support of access to justice.
We welcome nominations from legal educational providers, law students (including undergraduates, postgraduates, CILEX, trainee costs lawyers and legal apprentices) or those who are on vocational placements who have made significant contributions to the promotion and delivery of access to justice.
