Mallick of No5 Chambers nominated for 2014 Birmingham Law Society Pro Bono award
Nabila Mallick of No5 Chambers has been nominated for the 2014 Birmingham Law Society Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year award.
Mallick is a member of three groups at No5 Chambers: employment; immigration, asylum and nationality; and judicial review/High Court challenges.
In support of her nomination, a Birmingham-based client wrote: ‘Joe and Jane Public perceive lawyers to be rapacious beings with their first loyalty not to truth and rights, but to their wallets. Nabila Mallick is a barrister who is as far removed from that popular perception as it is possible to be.
‘Her actions reveal that she truly believes that everyone is entitled to justice and equality under the law, irrespective of the size of their income or socio-economic background. From my own experience with her, I can see that she forgoes her own income repeatedly by working pro bono to make that principle a reality.’
Last year’s Birmingham Law Society Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year award went to No5 barrister James Dixon.
