Cambridge Pro Bono Project

The Cambridge Pro Bono Project (‘CPP’) was established within the Faculty of Law in 2010, and launched by Professor Philippe Sands QC. Since then, the CPP has undertaken a number of major projects each year.

 


Since its inauguration, the CPP has partnered with dozens of bodies, including NGOs, charities, barristers’ chambers and courts. The CPP is a research centre, not a legal clinic. It works on a model which draws on the subject-matter expertise of graduate doctoral researchers, masters students, and Faculty experts, to produce reports on a wide range of public interest matters, including in the fields of public international law, criminal law, and domestic British public law.  

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 see our FAQ. You may contact the Executive Committee at cpp@law.cam.ac.uk. You can also follow the CPP on Twitter or Facebook.
