Lawyer and Beyond with Matthew Rhodes
Matthew left Ashurst in 2000 to found RollOnFriday, he is one of the founder directors of BCKR, spent 6 years as a trustee of Prisoners Abroad and is a visiting lecturer at BPP Law School. Matthew was appointed an OBE in the 2011 New Year’s List for services to legal pro bono.
In conversation with Guy Beringer, Matthew explained how he took the leap from legal practice to start RollOnFriday, shared his insights into the legal profession today and how it helps, (or not!) its senior lawyers to develop and move on from the profession. He says that “pro bono is in most lawyers’ DNA”. BCKR is well placed to guide all lawyers through the process to pro bono and beyond.
