The Cambridge Pro Bono Project

The Cambridge Pro Bono Project ("CPP") was established within the Faculty of Law in 2010 to provide a vehicle for graduate law students at the University of Cambridge to assist in the preparation of legal work in a pro bono capacity.

The three core objectives of the CPP are:

  1. to provide postgraduate students with an opportunity to engage with the law in a practical way, and to develop the skills and values central to the provision of pro bono legal work;
  2. to provide an avenue for the Faculty of Law to make a meaningful and practical contribution to public interest law; and
  3. to facilitate collaboration between the Faculty of Law and legal practitioners and organisations undertaking legal work in a pro bono capacity.

The CPP is administered by an Executive Committee, consisting of Faculty members and graduate law students.

Since its official launch in March 2011, the Cambridge Pro Bono Project has undertaken a number of major projects each year, some of which are described on our projects page. Not all projects are listed for client confidentiality reasons. The CPP celebrated its 10th anniversary in March 2020

We welcome project submissions from individuals and organisations undertaking public interest work in a pro bono capacity.

If you would like further information on the CPP or are interested in working with us – either as a project partner or a volunteer student – please contact the Executive Committee at You can also follow CPP on Twitter or Facebook.
