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. Following successful conferences in 2017, 2018 and 2019, UKademy is now a regular event on the calendar.
UKademy 2020 will take place on 11 June 2020 at DLA Piper. Further details will be made available in due course.
