Pro Bono Unit

Pro bono work alongside your degree is a great way of gaining legal work experience, learning how to provide law-related advice and getting involved in actual casework.

Why get involved?

Enhance your career prospects with pro bono experience. You will gain valuable insights into the problems affecting people and understand real law in action.

You can support local residents in dealing with community issues, provide free legal advice and assist members of the public.
