Justice week 2018 and Pro Bono Week 2018

Justice Week 2018 and Pro Bono Week 2018 

Pro Bono Week 2018 took place from 22 October to 26 October 2018. This was then followed by a new initiative known as Justice Week 2018. Previously Pro Bono Week was known as National Pro Bono Week.

Justice Week 2018 was set-up and sponsored by CILEx, the Law Society and the Bar Council, Justice Week brought together members of the legal sector to celebrate the breadth and impact of pro bono services in the legal profession. Numerous events, including a launch event in London, and various activities took place across the country.

The main purpose of Justice Week 2018 was to boost the profile of justice and the rule of law, helping to place them at the centre stage of public and political debate. This expanded on the concept of Pro Bono. Pro Bono week 2018 took place the week before Justice Week 2018 and had a more international theme than in previous years as it took place at the same time as Pro Bono Week across the world.
