Edinburgh Law School's Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC), an initiative set up in 2007 to provide pro-bono legal advice to the community, received the Pro Bono Award at this year's Law Awards of Scotland.
Speaking about the award, Rebecca Samaras, Director of the Edinburgh Centre for Professional Legal Studies (ECPLS) said:
"To receive the Pro Bono Award for the University of Edinburgh's Free Legal Advice Centre in its 10th year made it all the more special.
At a time when access to justice is becoming more and more limited, I am extremely proud to be part of a university, a law school, a legal profession and a Scottish University Law Clinic Network, all recognising the needs of the community and striving to provide support for those most in need.
This award is not just a symbol of what we have accomplished, but also a reminder of all the challenges we still need to meet."
Congratulations to Rebecca and all of the team at FLAC on this fantastic achievement.
