Our Sarah Colley attended University College London [UCL] on 12th December 2018 following an invitation from the Access to Justice Student Pro Bono Committee to be a guest speaker for a panel discussion. The topic of the discussion was How the Law protects the most vulnerable: Legal aid for children and victims of domestic violence.
The topics of discussion were: -
Sarah, and Wilsons Solicitors LLP as a whole, are very passionate about legally aided work and trying to ensure that the most vulnerable people in society have access to justice wherever possible. The profession is greatly assisted by the pro bono work provided by students and are hopeful that there are many budding legal aid lawyers amongst them.
About the event, Sarah states, ‘It was a great honour and privilege to be invited to talk to the students at UCL and I hope that some of them were inspired, despite being made aware of the challenges we in the profession do face, to become part of the next generation of legal aid lawyers.’
