Jonathan Holsgrove completes “25 for 25 : The Pro Bono Challenge”

Congratulations to Jonathan Holsgrove on completing more than 25 hours of pro bono work as part of the Advocate ’25 for 25’ challenge.

Having been inspired by pro bono champion the late John Collins, Jonathan has worked with Advocate for a number of years. His latest case involved providing advice on an appeal of a restraint order and associated Chancery proceedings in the High Court.

The ’25 for 25’ challenge has been set up to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Advocate, formerly the Bar Pro Bono Unit.  Barristers can complete the challenge not just through completing work for Advocate but doing any pro bono work for law centres or community groups.

For more information please visit Advocate – The Pro Bono Charity
