Chambers is delighted that Bridging The Bar (BTB), a charity founded by 7BR Member Mass Ndow-Njie won ‘Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year’ at the Advocate 2022 Bar Pro Bono Awards last night at The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple. BTB is a charity that aims to support aspiring barristers from a range of statistically underrepresented groups at the Bar.
Mass said: “Bridging the Bar is simply a reflection of the Bar’s best face. It represents what can be achieved when all of us come together. Thank you to our committee, staff, volunteers, partners and so many others who appreciate the importance of our mission.”
We’re equally pleased that, ahead of Pro Bono Week next week, Simon Rowbotham was runner-up and received a special mention for the ‘John Collins Pro Bono Excellence Award’ for the extraordinary impact he’s had in his pro bono cases. Earlier this year, Simon Rowbotham, Anita Guha, Ross Beaton and Rose Harvey-Sullivan completed the 25 for 25: The Pro Bono Challenge, an Advocate challenge that recognises those who have completed more than 25 hours since June 2021.
Thank you to the wonderful Advocate team for all you do across the year to facilitate and support pro bono at the Bar.
Congratulations to all the winners.
