Atkin Chambers continues to support Advocate as a Pro Bono Patron for 2022

17th Mar 2022

Atkin Chambers is committed to continuing its support for Advocate as a Pro Bono Patron for 2022. Advocate is the pro bono charity of the Bar. It matches members of the public with barristers who are willing to donate their time and expertise in deserving cases for those who are unable to obtain legal aid and cannot afford to pay.

“Atkin Chambers is pleased to continue its support for Advocate to help ensure it can continue to deliver its services to the most vulnerable in our society particularly at this challenging time,” commented Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC, Head of Atkin Chambers.

“Patron donations are essential in enabling us to provide pro bono help to vulnerable people who would otherwise be struggling on their own in the legal system. The pandemic brought home even more sharply how quickly health, home, job, business can suddenly be at stake. These are moments when people need to be able to count on the law. Pro bono work is a sign of the Bar’s commitment, come what may, to the public and the public interest. With the rise in interest rates, the soaring cost of energy bills and the cost of living being squeezed we anticipate a continued increase in the need for the Bar’s pro bono help. Patron donations will help us to rise to the occasion and we are delighted that Atkin Chambers stand alongside us as a longstanding generous supporter,” commented Rebecca Wilkie, Chief Executive.
