Appeal to Solicitors and Barristers


Can you volunteer several hours a year to take part in exciting projects to improve access to justice and help those who cannot access legal advice?

Avon and Bristol Law Centre are helping to reduce the disadvantage that clients in more isolated areas have of finding free legal advice as detailed above. If every lawyer in the area takes on one monthly advice session or one pro bono case a year we can go a long way to meet the needs of those currently suffering from a lack of advice provision and this helps us all live in a thriving and fair community.

We can set up everything for you here at ABLC or you can Skype direct from your offices. If you are a qualified employment or family solicitor, fellow legal executive or barrister and would like to volunteer with any of these pro bono projects, please contact alexm@ablc.org.uk or 0117 9248662 – we would love to tell you more and work around your capacity to help!
