The last (but not least) page of practising certificate renewals through MyBar encourages barristers to support the Bar’s charity by donating £35 to Advocate (formerly known as the Bar Pro Bono Unit).
All they need to do is not untick the box!
We would love it if you could encourage your barristers to support us – the contributions Advocate receives through this adds up to 40% of our funding. Without that generosity, we would not exist.
This year, please help us make our online application form and reviewer's portal a reality, develop initiatives that will enable us to reach vulnerable applicants who are isolated by being outside major cities, complete our case study project to get pro bono work recognised more widely in the media and recruit more volunteer barristers.
This opportunity to donate is kindly made available by the Bar Council and Bar Standards Board.
