We are very proud to see Katrina Thomson nominated under the Junior Lawyers Division Pro Bono Award at the 2020 Annual LawWorks Pro Bono Awards. As a firm we really understand the importance and value of Pro Bono work and are grateful to see the hard work of our team recognized.
Katrina's nomination recognises her work that has included supporting Coram Children's Legal Centre, providing free legal services to children and young people to enable them to apply for British citizenship; providing specialist intellectual property law training to Macmillan for their brand and fundraising teams; supporting the UK-based charity, Amicus, in carrying out a review to support a mitigation plea for a prisoner on death row and finally assisting with the review of chapters for the Legal Atlas for Street Children for Consortium for Street Children, a UK-based charity.
We share our congratulations to all the nominees and wish them all the best for the results which will be revealed on 2nd December!
The Awards recognise and celebrate achievement in legal pro bono work, undertaken by organisations and individuals, and the commitment of the legal sector in enabling access to justice. The finalists represent the breadth and range of pro bono activity undertaken by LawWorks members, pro bono clinics and others across England and Wales.
