We are passionate about access to justice. We encourage lawyers to work with local universities and community groups to deliver free legal advice to individuals who don't have access to legal advice. Bristol Pro Bono Group works collaboratively to identify not-for-profit organisations working in the public interest who need legal help.

What is pro bono?

We follow the definition of pro bono used by TrustLaw (found here).

Pro bono work is not a substitute for a proper system of publicly funded legal services. However, we believe that lawyers have the responsibility to use their professional skills to do their bit for society.
