I thought Brett Carron’s presentation at the conference was excellent. Whilst I preach with the faith of the recently converted on the issue of litigation funding, I have no doubt that we will have an opportunity to work together soon.
Sponsorship of The National Pro Bono Centre
Harbour Litigation Funding has become a gold sponsor of The National Pro Bono Centre. The Centre, launched just a year ago, is seeking new funding to support further development of its facilities in Chancery Lane, London.
Susan Dunn, head of litigation funding, said; “We’re fully behind the Centre’s mission to increase and improve access to justice. It’s an impressive facility which has already demonstrated its enormous value to so many individuals and communities in its first twelve months. We hope our contribution will continue to support the Centre’s growth and development in the heart of the city’s legal community.”
The National Pro Bono Centre houses the profession’s national clearing houses for legal pro bono work delivered in England and Wales - the Bar Pro Bono Unit, LawWorks (the Solicitors’ Pro Bono Group) and the CILEx Pro Bono Trust (CILEx PBT). The Centre is designed to be a “hub” for pro bono charities in the sector and will support the wide range of pro bono projects and brokerage which the charities support, helping individuals and community groups all over England and Wales. This has led to three other charities joining the Centre: The Access to Justice Foundation, the London Legal Support Trust and i-ProBono.
