International Spinal Cord Society conference: pro bono work showcased

The 56th annual scientific meeting of the International Spinal Cord Society took place recently in Dublin. On offer were a series of informative lectures and workshops, with medical research being presented on a highly diverse range of subjects linked to the incidence of spinal injury, research and technology.

Partner Charles Edwards gave a talk to a meeting of specialist nurses on the benefits of lawyers providing pro bono legal advice to patients in spinal units.

Charles highlighted the valuable work that has been carried out by the Stewarts Pro Bono team over a number of years, and explained that assistance continues long after a patient’s discharge from hospital.
