Pro Bono Week is a great time to showcase your firm’s pro bono commitment, and to celebrate your lawyers’ volunteering. 

  • On social media or your website, highlight your pro bono work either generally, or with case studies of people/charities/causes helped by your lawyers (use hashtags #WeDoProBono #ProBonoWeek). 
  • Post photos/selfies of your lawyers holding the “I Do Pro Bono” poster, or videos talking about why they do pro bono. 
  • Join the Great Legal Bake and post photos of your bake sale, and raise money for local advice charities. 
  • It’s also a chance for internal messages to inform your colleagues about your pro bono work and encourage them to sign up, or to conduct an internal survey. 

If your firm is not yet involved in a pro bono scheme, Pro Bono Week is a great opportunity to sign up, details are at
