It is part of the Law Society’s stated mission to ensure access to justice for all and one of the ways we achieve this is to help bring free legal aid to those in need in our community.

Every year, our pro bono programmes provide accurate and relevant legal help to thousands who need it but cannot otherwise afford to access it.

Our lawyers give generously and selflessly of their time and expertise for the needy in our community as well as charitable organisations in need of legal assistance.
