School Director of Pro Bono speaks at CLEO (Clinical Legal Education Organisation) Workshop

On 16th November Dr Nick Roberts, School Director of Enterprise/Pro Bono, attended a CLEO workshop in Portsmouth University, as an invited speaker on a panel addressing Law Schools working with Citizens’ Advice Bureaux. It was a valuable opportunity to share experiences of this and other Pro Bono projects. From conversations with other delegates it was clear that the Reading Law School does indeed offer one of the widest range of Pro Bono activities of any Law School in England and Wales. Having this range of projects enables us to involve many more students than most universities which offer, for example, a dedicated Student Law Clinic: limitations on numbers generally mean that only a small number of students can then be involved.
