Former Attorney General visits FRU

FRU was pleased to welcome Lord Peter Goldsmith, the former Attorney General, to our offices today.

Lord Goldsmith is a well-known advocate of legal pro bono work, having been awarded the Lifetime Award for Extraordinary Contribution to the Development of Pro Bono Culture in Europe in 2014. He agreed to visit FRU to find out more about our work in representing clients in social security and employment tribunals and providing clinical legal education. Lord Goldsmith spent the morning touring the FRU office and speaking to staff and trustees.

Principal Legal Officer Emma Baldwin said “it was a pleasure to welcome Lord Goldsmith to FRU today. He was very interested in the issues facing FRU’s clients, in how FRU works and in our plans for the future.”
