Dress for Success Houston Hosts Will-A-Thon with Volunteer V&E Lawyers, Alumni and Staff

World Medical Fund for Children (WMF) runs a medical elective programme in Malawi. Having previously produced a form of volunteer agreement for the programme, Emily Barlass, Lucy Preston and Antonia George worked with WMF to produce a consistent and consolidated policy manual to which its volunteers can refer for information about, for example, the programme, travel and other required documentation and internal policies such as anti-bribery and confidentiality.

Project Spotlight: Part 1 – V&E Guardianship Project

V&E Pro Bono Projects come to be in many different ways – from the keen interest of a V&E lawyer, as a result of an inquiring call from a legal service provider or because of a national or international crisis. This project came to be because a former legal services lawyer, now BigLaw Pro Bono Counsel, was just being a parent in the waiting room of a children’s hospital.
