We are very pleased to announce that 3VB’s International Advisory and Dispute Resolution Unit (IADRU) has been shortlisted in the category of ‘Pro Bono & Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year’ for the 2024 Advocate Bar Pro Bono Awards. IADRU’s coordinator, Agnes Gitau, has also been shortlisted in the Pro Bono Chambers’ Professional of the Year category.

The awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 8th May 2024 at Middle Temple Hall. The awards are sponsored by LexisNexis.

Since 1997, the Bar Pro Bono Awards have been a unique opportunity in the legal calendar to recognise the remarkable pro bono achievements of the Bar in England and Wales. The awards recognise those individuals and chambers who have gone above and beyond expectation when undertaking pro bono work to support access to justice.

IADRU was launched in November 2019 with the core objective: to assist 3VB meet its corporate social responsibility objectives in the international arena. Members of 3VB have a long history of acting for clients on a pro bono basis before the English courts, ensuring that those who need legal representation receive high quality legal representation irrespective of their financial status.

With over 100 nominations received across the categories, to be shortlisted is a huge achievement and a testament to real commitment to access justice. Congratulations to all those shortlisted.
