Steve Broach has been nominated for Junior Pro Bono Barrister of the Year in the Bar Pro Bono Awards 2018. He has also been nominated as part of the group working on the Mencap Learning Disability Legal Network for the category of Pro Bono Innovation of the Year. The purpose of the Bar Pro Bono Awards, which is organised by the Bar Pro Bono Unit, is to thank and recognise outstanding contributions to pro bono work from across the profession. All nominees have dedicated a huge amount of time assisting others, have provided innovation and inspiration to others through their work, and have shown a commitment to the pro bono ethic.
This is the first year, since its inception in 1997, that the Bar Pro Bono Award has been expanded from just one award to nine separate categories. The judging panel, this year, includes the Lord Chief Justice, Chair of the Bar and the elusive Secret Barrister. The winners will be announced at the Awards evening on Wednesday 24th October.
