Pro Bono Connect matches pro bono barristers and solicitors on civil matters for individuals, charities and community groups who cannot afford legal advice or representation.
Working together on cases enables lawyers to bring their different strengths and collaborate more effectively as a team to give the client the best possible service.
The NPBC has ringfenced funding to provide support on request for Pro Bono Connect to enable it to develop, grow and deliver even more pro bono help to those most in need.
The NPBC also collaborates with Pro Bono Connect on the Pro Bono Expert Support (PBES) scheme, which invites litigation support services to provide their expert assistance on cases for free.
It is an invaluable facility. Without the support of both barrister and solicitor such progress would have been impossible. It shows the legal system in its best light. I am so thankful.
