We have a long history of providing free legal advice to charities and individuals.
Our pro bono work falls into two categories:
- law centre volunteering - every week we provide a team of volunteer advisers to staff an evening advice clinic at Islington Law Centre and an additional team of qualified litigators serve as Honorary Legal Advisers at the RCJ Advice Bureau
- charity clients - we provide our charity partners with pro bono support as and when they need it and actively seek ways in which our legal expertise might be used to support their causes
In each of our practice areas, dedicated partners act as 'pro bono champions' to encourage and support pro bono. We are members of a number of pro bono referral organisations including LawWorks and TrustLaw, which enable us to reach many different types of charities and community groups, locally and globally.
Our Legal Toolkit for Charities is free to download from our website and provides charity professionals with a useful guide to common legal questions. We also bring the Toolkit to life through a series of legal masterclasses that we deliver to the charities we work with.
