UKademy grew from a Plan meeting discussion that focused on how law firms could share knowledge with each other to help expand their respective pro bono practises. An initial suggestion to arrange some professional development sessions quickly snowballed – with support from The Association of Pro Bono Counsel – into multiple sessions spread over two days in September 2016, all provided completely free to attendees. Successful repeats in 2017 and 2018 mean that UKademy is now a regular event on the calendar.

UKademy 2019 takes place on Wednesday 11 September at Baker McKenzie, London from 10:00am and will wrap up at 5:45pm. A full schedule for the day will become available in due course.

Registration is not yet open, but if you are interested in attending have a look at the eligibility information.
