Hunters’ Family team celebrates pro-bono successes and expands commitment

Our Family department has proudly joined forces with Charles Russell Speechlys and Withersworldwide to volunteer at a pro-bono family legal clinic in Plymouth, a region often labelled a ‘legal black spot’ in the UK. This collaborative effort underscores our dedication to addressing legal needs in underserved communities, ensuring that justice is accessible to everyone.

We are thrilled to announce that this service has been recognised at the 2023 LawWorks awards, where the pro-bono family legal clinic in Plymouth received a ‘highly commended’ award. This achievement not only recognises the hard work put in by the volunteers across the three firms but also emphasises the crucial role of pro-bono initiatives in bridging legal disparities across the country.

Taking our commitment to community service further, we are delighted to report that we have recently become part of the Support Through Court Guardian network. Support Through Court is a vital initiative, partly funded by the MOJ and much welcomed by the Judiciary, that assists litigants in person in navigating the complexities of the legal system. By providing crucial information and support, the charity empowers individuals to represent themselves effectively in court, contributing to a more equitable legal landscape, and we are delighted to support it.

Recognising the transformative impact of pro-bono work, we have also recently developed a pro-bono policy, solidifying our dedication to giving back to the community. As we eagerly anticipate the year ahead, we are committed to expanding our pro-bono efforts in 2024. We believe that pro-bono work not only addresses gaps in legal access but also reinforces the fundamental principle that justice should be accessible to all, regardless of socio-economic status. We are proud to be part of this positive change, embodying the spirit of social responsibility within the legal profession.
