BPP University Pro Bono

BPP University’s pro bono projects provide a wide range of legal services without charge through a varied and interesting programme, all delivered by BPP University Law School students with guidance from qualified lawyers. Taking part in pro bono gives students the perfect opportunity to demonstrate their legal professionalism and build up experiences that will prepare them for a career in law.

Many students never forget these experiences and deliver pro bono advice throughout their careers.
