John Collins: Winner of the Yorkshire Legal Awards Pro Bono Award 2017

We are delighted that John Collins was recognised at the Yorkshire Legal Awards 2017 and received the Pro Bono Award.

"John stands out for his exceptionally longstanding commitment to pro bono and the Bar Pro Bono Unit.  It is clear that John's commitment to pro bono and access to justice is felt keenly by his colleagues, and he has become a great ambassador for the Unit and pro bono generally" - Lord Peter Goldsmith QC, President, Bar Pro Bono Unit.

Chambers is extremely proud of John Collins. His passion for access to justice via Pro Bono work for people who would have no voice without it remains as strong today as it was six decades ago when his career began. John is a true inspiration to so many young (and not so young) lawyers both in Leeds and nationwide and this has been recognised with this award. Many congratulations John!
