Please join us for an evening of inspiring Pro Bono SPARK Talks from across the pro bono sector to launch the 15th annual National Pro Bono Week.
The National Pro Bono Week committee are holding an evening of “Spark Talks” on Monday 7 November, kindly hosted by BPP University’s Pro Bono Centre.
SPARK talks are a feature of the Public Interest Lawyers Network's annual conference, where they invite thought leaders within the public interest law field to provoke the imagination and challenge attitudes through short but stimulating presentations. The National Pro Bono Week committee in 2015 mirrored this event with some success and are again inviting figures from across the pro bono sector to give short and inspiring talks about their interaction with legal pro bono to launch the 15th National Pro Bono Week 2016.
