Birmingham Law Society welcomed Shami Chakrabarti, director of civil liberties and human rights organisation Liberty, as guest speaker at its annual pro bono networking event.

The evening, organised by the Society’s Pro Bono Committee, gave lawyers the chance to meet with charitable organisations and advice agencies from across the city who need help providing free legal advice.

More than 100 people from the city’s legal sector attended the event at Mills & Reeve, alongside organisations including Birmingham Citizens Advice Bureau, EDAS Foundation, CEPLER, Bradical, University of Law, the PSU, Midland’s Legal Support Trust and BVSC.

The event was sponsored by St Philips Chambers and Wesleyan.
