The event included a panel discussion on working Pro Bono and was chaired by Marcus Keppel Palmer, UWE Bristol’s Pro Bono Associate Head of Department.

The panel included Julian Hemming, Partner at Osborne Clarke, who has been involved with the pro bono Business and Law Clinic which was recently launched at UWE’s new Enterprise Zone “Future Space”. Julian was joined by Drew Huskisson, Advice Team Manager at the North Bristol Advice Centre, whose job involves providing free and independent advice to those you can’t afford justice.

Finally the panel was made of two our alumni: Marco Anderson, who is studying for his LLM, and Joshua Hazelwood, who is a Paralegal, Knights Professional Services. Both Joshua and Marco were heavily involved in Pro Bono projects during their time at UWE.
