Professional Indemnity Insurance
Where an in-house lawyer or team partners with a law firms, pro bono referral scheme, or advice centre, it is likely that the partner organisation’s professional indemnity insurance will cover the in-house team’s pro bono legal work.
For projects or programmes that are not otherwise covered by professional indemnity insurance, LawWorks operates the LawWorks Professional Indemnity Insurance Scheme, which can provide in-house lawyers whose organisations are Members with free professional indemnity insurance for registered pro bono projects.
Please visit the LawWorks Pro Bono Professional Indemnity Insurance Scheme for more information on the availability of the Scheme.
