Depending on your particular are of interest and capacity, there are a range of programmes for you to get involved:
Clinics in the LawWorks Network are independent, locally run and provide free initial advice to individuals, predominantly in the area of social welfare law on either a drop-in or appointment basis. Advice is delivered face-to-face, over the telephone and in some circumstances via Skype.
The Not-For-Profits Programme connects small not-for-profit organisations in need of legal support with the skills and expertise of lawyers, to support the continuation and expansion of their services to people in need.
Secondary specialisation is a programme to support lawyers in firms and in-house teams to develop expertise in areas of social welfare law where need is significant and supply increasingly limited.
Legal and skills training to give volunteers confidence to provide advice at clinics.
