Press statement: LawWorks and A4ID to merge

LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) and A4ID (Advocates for International Development) announce that they are to merge.

"We are delighted to announce that LawWorks and A4ID have agreed to merge and become a single organisation. We hope to complete the merger by mid-summer. As two of the leading charities in the sector providing vital access to legal services for those who need it most, the merger will create a stronger, more resilient, efficient and effective organisation that is better able to meet the increasing demand we are seeing.

“The merged entity will, amongst other things, be a combined brokerage for the provision of domestic and international pro bono legal assistance for individuals, NGOs and community-based organisations.”
