The Legal 500 is proud to support the efforts of the Billable Hour campaign. In September 2015, the terrible consequences of the refugee crisis were plain. Horror at the suffering of the desperate and the sight of children washed ashore compelled lawyers to help. The aim was to ask lawyers to donate their fee for one billable hour of their time to Save the Children. Over £250,000 has been raised so far, but we can do so much more.
This year’s Billable Hour campaign will support Save the Children as it strives to protect children caught in Yemen’s conflict, the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world. Save the Children have already reached more than 2 million children in Yemen, and continue to provide health, nutrition, child protection and education interventions to children in some of the toughest circumstances.
The suffering of children continues and so does the Billable Hour campaign.
The following lawyers and law firms have donated – they are our Billable Hour Heroes:
