Pro Bono Bristol launched

Pro Bono Bristol has formally been launched as a group for Bristol. Terms of Reference have been agreed and for 2019/20 Abi Jones from Simmons and Simmons will chair the group with Miriam Bishop form Bevan Brittan acting as Vice Chair.  The intention was that the group needed to be led by legal firms, although Bristol Law Centre will continue to support and administer it.  Both Abi and Miriam have a good understanding of different community needs and challenges: Abi worked pro- bono on Windrush issues, whilst Miriam worked for Age UK in Hackney prior to becoming a solicitor. Bristol law Centre, The PSU and Bristol CAB will represent the Voluntary sector on the group, and UWE, Uni of Law, Uni of Bristol and BPP are also represented.
