Public Interest Law

We set up special projects to identify legal need, and help meet it. So everyone has a fair chance at a better life.

Sometimes legal need doesn’t fit neatly into the services free legal help providers can offer. That’s where our Public Interest Law team comes in. We work with professionals to identify legal matters of public interest and provide expert legal help from our network of pro bono lawyers.

I want pro bono help for my CLC’s legal work

We can connect you with lawyers or barristers who will help your CLC, pro bono. For example, we can find barristers to help with merits assessments, to appear in matters you’re running or lawyers to provide expert support.
