Registered Charity No: 1064274 (England & Wales).
LawWorks (the operating name for the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) is a charity working to enable access to justice through connecting people to free legal advice.
We connect volunteer lawyers, trainees and law students with individuals in need, who are not eligible for legal aid and who cannot afford to pay. We also broker legal advice for community groups and smaller charities, enabling them to better support their beneficiaries.
LawWorks supports a network of over 240 local independent advice clinics across England and Wales, staffed by volunteer lawyers and law students. The clinics in our network provide advice and information on a range of legal issues, including housing, employment, family law, and welfare benefits. Timely access to legal help can enable people to keep their accommodation, prevent loss of employment and income, and avoid problems escalating.
We support volunteer advisers with training, information and resources, giving them the confidence and skills to make a difference to people’s lives.
LawWorks is committed to supporting, promoting and encouraging a commitment to pro bono across the legal profession. We believe that by working together we can achieve more and increase the number of people and communities we support across England and Wales.
