The 25 for 25 challenge encourages barristers to provide 25 hours of free legal advice to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of the pro-bono charity Advocate.

Advocate said ‘‘Advocate’s anniversary initiative, 25 for 25: The Pro Bono Challenge, was conceived as a way to promote pro bono and recognise the Bar’s amazing contribution to access to justice. You have completed approximately 35 hours pro bono, which is an amazingly generous achievement. Thank you.

It is wonderful to be working with barristers, such as yourself, that have made pro bono a part of their career and are dedicated to providing access to justice for the most vulnerable. Your generosity and compassion are inspiring.’’

Advocate is supported by The Bar Council and helps to find free legal help from barristers. Visit the Advocate website for more information.

Matthew's colleague, commercial barrister, Max Schofield completed the same challenge earlier this year, as reported here.
