Pro bono case studies

Solicitors regularly do pro bono work for individuals, charities and community groups who cannot afford to pay for legal advice or representation.

These case studies are just a few examples of the positive contribution pro bono work can make to the community.

If your organisation has examples of pro bono work you'd like to share, email Valerie Robertson.
