Lawyers who volunteer for development projects have ­‘demolished the stereotype of lawyers being money-grabbing’, Archbishop Desmond Tutu (pictured, left, with attorney general Baroness Scotland, right) said this week. Speaking at an event organised by legal charity Advocates for International Development, he praised the legal profession’s work in providing free assistance for those most in need. He told the audience at St Paul’s Cathedral that lawyers played a ‘vital role’ in addressing inequality and alleviating poverty.
