Inaugural Pro Bono Recognition List

June 20, 2024

Grace Cullen

Grace Cullen has been included on the inaugural Pro Bono Recognition List of England & Wales. The List recognises barristers and solicitors who gave 25 hours or more pro bono legal assistance over the last year. The initiative is supported by the Law Society, the Bar Council and all the major pro bono organisations under the aegis of the Attorney General’s Pro Bono Committee. The Lady Chief Justice, Baroness Carr, who is the patron, said:

‘I take this opportunity to thank each and every solicitor and barrister who appears on the Recognition List. Each has provided at least 25 hours of legal pro bono last year, with many offering substantially more than that. Those lawyers follow the long tradition of the legal profession in volunteering their time to provide free legal assistance to individuals and charities.’

Grace Cullen is an honorary legal advisor for Citizens Advice, providing pro bono legal assistance at a monthly clinic in employment law. Many of the clients that Grace has advised have been able to exercise their legal rights in claims of discrimination, unpaid wages, unfair dismissal and breach of contract.
