Bristol Law Centre – Pro Bono assistance required!


Bristol Law Centre has some on-going calls for volunteers in the following areas:

Family lawyers – ongoing open-call for volunteers – would need to be 2yrs + PQE as we don’t have a supervision model in place to support advice-giving as a secondary specialism at this time, although this might change in the future. If there is anyone who practices family law, we would love to hear from them.

Civil Disputes Clinic – we are looking to develop this clinic. We have a great cohort of volunteers who advise on all sorts of civil litigation matters. It would be good to support our current volunteers to advise more confidently on certain types of enquiries through a training session. Enquiries include a range of landlord and tenant issues and neighbour disputes, often relating to anti-social behaviour. We would also really welcome anyone with a specialism in L&T to volunteer as part of the clinic (open to this being a regular/ad-hoc arrangement)

Please contact Evi Economou at Bristol Law Centre @  evie@bristollawcentre.org.uk if you can assist.
