Remote Solicitor: Legal Advice – Civil Litigation [Alternate Wednesday evenings] East Greenwich Legal Advice Clinic

  • London/Online

Would you like to use your skills and experience in Civil Litigation to help vulnerable people in South East London with no access to legal advice?

 

East Greenwich Legal Advice Clinic (EGLAC) provides free legal advice on a wide range of issues to people living in South East London who are unable to pay for legal advice.

 

EGLAC is currently looking for solicitors to provide free legal advice on Civil Litigation matters, either at the fortnightly evening clinic in East Greenwich, or remotely by email, telephone or Zoom.

 

Advisers at EGLAC usually volunteer around six to eight evenings per year on a rota agreed in advance, typically meeting with 1-2 clients for pre-booked 45-minute appointments between 7pm and 8.45pm on alternate Wednesday evenings. Appointments held remotely can be arranged for a mutually-convenient time.

 

This is an opportunity for solicitors to use their valuable skills and experience in new ways to help vulnerable people who would not otherwise have access to legal advice. Pro bono experience makes a CV more interesting to potential employers, and making  a contribution to the community can lead to various health and psychological benefits, including a renewed sense of purpose.

 

EGLAC is looking for solicitors with experience in Civil Litigation matters. Solicitors will need a current Practising Certificate but all advice given through the clinic is covered by our professional indemnity insurance.

 

To apply for this position, please contact Emma Martin at emmam@eglac.org.uk with a CV and covering letter explaining why you are interested in volunteering for EGLAC, and to arrange a Zoom meeting to discuss in further detail.

To apply for this job email your details to emmam@eglac.org.uk.
