Salford Business School is thrilled to announce that one of its Level 6 students, Seyedah Saf Shekan, has successfully been appointed to the National Student Pro Bono Committee, to help oversee the week-long celebrations.


Seyedah, a final year Undergraduate Law student and Student Ambassador for Salford Business School, will be taking a key role as part of the Committee, including attending events throughout the week and making key decisions about how best to mark Pro Bono Week.

Seyedah Saf Shekan, student of the University of Salford, commented: “This is a real honour and a great opportunity for me to further my experience and expertise in the legal field. I’m really passionate about Pro Bono, because it’s really important in terms of levelling the playing field and ensuring that everyone who needs it has access to legal support. I look forward to getting involved in the events and decision-making of the Committee as part of Pro Bono Week 2023!”

Dr Sinead Farry, Lecturer in Law and SILKS Law Clinic Manager at Salford Business School, added: “We were all thrilled for Seyedah when we heard the news. She is an exceptional student who is totally dedicated to legal practice, so it is no surprise that she has been selected for this prestigious national Committee. I look forward to seeing Seyedah thrive at Committee meetings and in her future career.”
