The Great Legal Bake is a way of promoting the work of charities which offer free legal advice and support to vulnerable people otherwise denied access to the legal system and the legal profession, whose support of the sector is vital.
Teams from local firms, chambers, advice agencies, law schools and courts come together to bake and raise money for the North East Legal Support Trust to support the provision of free legal advice in the North East of England.
Teams also get to nominate a charity who will benefit from 50% of the money raised by that team (the other 50% being donated to NELST). Given the nature of NELST's work, we would expect and encourage most teams to consider nominating a 'legal' charity.
