The Pro Bono Law Awards were held at the Royal College of Surgeons on the evening of Wednesday 11th June. The University of Huddersfield were attending as shortlisted nominees for the Best Partnership award for its pro bono legal clinic. Ridley & Hall’s Adam Fletcher was invited as guest of honour through the firm’s strong links with the university and its law clinic. Unfortunately, the University of Huddersfield was just pipped to the post by the Norfolk Community Law Centre and the University of East Anglia. However, with all the magic circle firms and major international firms present the University was pleased to be able to fly the flag for Huddersfield. It is incredible to think that the clinic has only been open for less than 8 months and have already come runners up in two major national awards. The name and reputation of the Legal Advice Clinic and the pro bono work being undertaken in Huddersfield, Kirklees and beyond is spreading and this is down to all the hard work of the students, tutors and the Partners in Law, of whom Ridley & Hall are proud to be a part.
