It's been an unusual and - for us - record-breaking year in terms of placing cases with barristers. But we know full well that we couldn't do this without the help of wonderful practice managers and clerks all over the country, so we wanted to say a huge 'Thank you' to you (and all your barristers) who have helped us place so many pieces of work. Of the 500, 255 have been undertaken since the lockdown started and we've had 168 new sign-ups from barristers keen to do pro bono. We've recently seen a lot of second sixers either taking cases or teaming up with seniors to work together and embracing the opportunity to develop their careers. Joining in with the praise, Amanda Pinto QC said: "Congratulations to the volunteer barristers who have given their time and expertise to help the most vulnerable by working for Advocate during lockdown. I encourage everyone to sign up to help!"
