Asylum Aid Highly Commended by the LawWorks Annual Pro Bono Awards 2021

Claire Splawn

Asylum Aid's Statelessness Pro Bono partnership with a network of 12 global law firms has been recognised by the LawWorks Annual Pro Bono Awards under the category of Most Effective Pro Bono Partnership. 

The LawWorks commented: 

"The project exemplifies an effective pro bono partnership between an NGO and law firms (which compete vigorously for billable work) to address a complex issue, inspiring other collaborative pro bono in the UK.”

The partnership has been running since 2018 and consists of a large-scale collaborative pro bono project tackling the complex issue of statelessness in the UK. Asylum Aid's legal team works closely with lawyers across the 12 firms, to train, share experiences and suggestions to ensure each application is successful.
