What does it cost?

Membership is free. All you have to do is:

  • Adopt the “aspirational target” of 25 pro bono hours (average per UK lawyer, per year)
  • Send someone to quarterly Plan meetings
  • Submit data each year on your pro bono practice

But my firm is nowhere near the 25 hour target! 

Don’t worry, our members cover a wide range from 2-100 hours average.  Your hours will not be published nor made public, nor even shared with other Plan members other than in a de-identified format.  It may take many years before you reach the target; what you are agreeing to is that you share our vision that all lawyers should do at least 25 pro bono hours per year.

But I don’t have a dedicated pro bono professional at my firm! 

That’s okay, one of the aims of the Plan is to help firms which don’t yet have a dedicated pro bono professional navigate this area.  Many firms send a partner or associate from their pro bono committee to Plan meetings.

I’m from an in house legal team  – can we join?
