On 13 March 2023, Thomas Shortland spoke at an event run jointly by the Chancery Bar Association and the Judges of the Business and Property Courts (Chancery Division). The purpose of the event was to encourage barristers and solicitor advocates to participate in the Chancery Bar Association’s Litigant in Person Support (CLIPS) Scheme. CLIPS is the Chancery Bar Association’s flagship pro bono scheme run in association with Advocate (the Bar’s national pro bono charity) and with the assistance of members of other specialist bar associations. The scheme provides on-the-day assistance to unrepresented litigants in the daily Interim Applications List in the Chancery Division and in the Business and Property List at Central London County Court. Tom spoke at the event alongside The Honorable Mr Justice Fancourt, Andrew de Mestre KC (4 Stone Buildings) and Emma Horner (4 Stone Buildings).
