Free Legal Assistance

Free legal assistance

The Not-for-Profits Programme from Law Works is for small not-for-profit organisations that cannot afford or would struggle to pay for legal advice.

Where a not-for-profit organisation needs help with a one-off legal issue, Law Works match the organisation with a volunteer lawyer from its network of member law firms and in-house legal teams who can advise on that matter.  The advice is given for free (pro bono).

Examples of discrete matters volunteers can help with include:

  • drafting a contract
  • reviewing a lease
  • updating a constitution/articles, or
  • clarifying rights in a commercial dispute.
