Free videos

LawWorks develops resources which provide general information for not-for-profit organisations on specific areas of law, to enable them to spot and avoid potential legal problems. Theses resources include Free Talks.

Free Talks

Free Talks are short online videos about common legal issues faced by small not-for-profit organisations.

The videos are all free to watch and aim to help you when making important decisions.

We are hugely grateful to the Legal Education Foundation for funding this project.

Please see below for a list of Free Talks.
