This Sunday I shall be running the London Marathon to raise money for the Free Representation Unit (where I work as Legal Officer, Employment).
We provide pro bono representation in social security tribunals and employment tribunals to people who can’t afford lawyers. We do this primarily by training and supervising law students to take cases, giving them a chance to get valuable experience. This lets us do about 800 cases a year, making us one of the biggest providers of free representation in the country measured by work, although we have only five full-time staff.
It’s a good cause, and I’ll be running a rather long way, so I’d very much appreciate any support you can give.
Donations can be made via Justgiving.
