The National Pro Bono Centre is a charity which is designed to be a “hub” for pro bono charities across the legal sector. It supports the wide range of pro bono projects and brokerage which the charities provide, helping individuals and community groups all over England and Wales. The office on Chancery Lane provides a central resource for charities that try to help people seeking pro bono legal advice and representation.
The Centre is not able to provide legal advice, however this website should be able to point you in the direction of those who can, and also assist lawyers who are interested in pro bono opportunities.
The Centre encourages pro bono work throughout England & Wales and is a proud supporter of National Pro Bono Week.
The 16th annual National Pro Bono Week will take place on 6-10 November 2017. Sponsored by the Law Society, Bar Council and CILEx, the aim of the week is to celebrate the breadth and impact of pro bono work undertaken by the legal profession across the year, and to encourage further involvement and development.
The guide to pro bono produced for the week is available here.
