The Access to Justice Foundation this year has another student essay competition. This year the title of the essay is
“There’s no such thing as a free lunch”:
How should pro bono be funded?
Given the recent concern raised in Northern Ireland about the costs of legal aid and of lawyers’ fees in general, how pro bono cases should be funded is an interesting question. Any law student who wishes to enter the competition can find further details here. Essays need to be submitted by 5pm on 28 February and the prize includes £300-worth of book tokens from LexisNexis to be spent on products from their range.
