Kathryn Finch – solicitor, EDI consultant and founder of Quartz Consulting and Coaching – chats to Debjani Biswas-Hawkes of LawW
We provide free legal advice to clients who cannot afford to pay for advice. We are looking for solicitors who can supervise students in advising clients with Deputy matters in the Court of Protection. Clients are triaged by the pro bono coordinator, students then undertake legal research and design a conference plan. Students then interview the client in a team to fill in gaps and seek further documentation and draft a letter of advice, which will be guided and supervised by a volunteer solicitor to ensure legal accuracy.
