Tenth anniversary review of the National Pro Bono Target

27 June 2018 7:54 AM | Anonymous

The tenth anniversary review of the National Pro Bono Target has recently been undertaken and has facilitated the Pro Bono Centre to revisit the strengths and weakness of the Target scheme.

A number of changes will be implemented from 1 July which will support pro bono growth in the future. Of significant interest, the 'Aspirational Target' remains at 35 hours per lawyer per annum, however the word 'Aspirational' has been dropped, and pro bono work undertaken for social enterprises will be eligible for inclusion towards target hours. The final report of the review can be found HERE
