After being awarded the Bar Pro Bono Award 2017 for her work with Evolve, Tanya Murshed will now be on the judging panel for this year’s nominees.


This year’s awards will be expanded beyond the one Bar Pro BonoAward which has been presented to a barrister each year since 1997, in order to recognise the wider contribution barristers and chambers make to providing free legal advice and advocacy to the most vulnerable in society. For further details please see here.


Other judges on the panel include the Bar Pro Bono Unit Founder and President Lord Goldsmith QC,  the Lord Chief Justice and Chair of the Bar.
