Update from Bristol Law Centre re its pro-bono clinics and volunteering

Bristol Law Centre is currently continuing with its pro-bono clinics in Family, Civil Litigation and Employment. We are particularly inundated with Family enquiries which we are currently unable to manage the volume of enquiries.

Anyone who specialises in these areas of law and is 2 years PQE+ and holds a practising certificate, can volunteer for the Law Centre. As the client is a client of the Law Centre, insurance cover is provided by the Law Centre. Appointments are conducted over the phone with the client, they are one off and last between 30 -45 minutes.

If you are on furlough, you are allowed to volunteer your services to another organisation, although you should check with your firm first.

If you are interested in undertaking any volunteering, please contact Evi Economou at
