Pro Bono Services

  1. Do you need free legal advice? 
  2. Do you want to give free legal advice? 

The Birmingham Law Society does not provide free legal advice, but the Pro Bono Committee can help! Our aims are to:

  • support;
  • co-ordinate;
  • promote;
  • signpost; and 
  • raise the profile 

of pro bono work amongst Birmingham Law Society members and the local community. 

"Pro bono" is the term for free legal help for someone who cannot afford to pay for legal assistance and is not entitled to legal aid. Pro bono complements, but is not a substitute for, legal aid. 

Organisations who provide pro bono often need more volunteers. Through pro bono work you can give something back to your community and develop your legal skills and knowledge.

If you need advice, or you would like to volunteer, please review our database.
