Pro bono opportunity with the University of Exeter's Access to Justice Clinic

There is no law centre in the Exeter area and limited pro bono capacity combined with high public demand in the southwest of England as a whole. The Access to Justice Clinic is a project set up by the University of Exeter to provide pro bono legal advice and support for the local community across a range of issues including (but not limited to) housing, employment, benefits and tax credits, probate, contracts, debt, criminal law and intellectual property.

What are you looking for volunteers to help with?

We are looking for suitably qualified supervisors who would work remotely to review research, advise students on drafting suitable advice and review that advice once written. Specialisation in any area of law is welcome, although we have a particular need for volunteer practitioners with experience in family or criminal law.

What will the time commitment be?

Reviewing work generally takes no more than a few hours per individual case. There is no minimum requirement on the number of cases taken each year.

What will volunteers get out of this?

Volunteers will get supervisory experience of students, and the opportunity to support a critical service for the community.

Person specification - what type of volunteers are you looking for?

Minimum 3 years PQE

Application process - is there any information you would like applicants to provide?
