LawWorks supports a growing network of over 220 local independent pro bono advice clinics across England and Wales.
In the year to March 2016 clinics in the LawWorks Clinics Network responded to over 53,000 enquiries, a 24% increase on the previous year, supported by over 4,800 volunteers.
As the Clinics Network Report highlights: each clinic is unique, but generally involve a partnership bringing together law firms, individual solicitors, in-house legal teams, barristers and law schools, working with advice agencies and charities.
LawWorks supports the development of new clinics, from initial idea stage through to piloting and launch, as well as providing ongoing support (including troubleshooting), information and resources for established clinics. Resources for clinics in the Network include free access to legal research tools, secure document storage solutions, as well as factsheets, toolkits, and access to training (including online videos and podcasts).
The clinics in the LawWorks Clinic Network should be rightfully proud of the work they do and the positive contribution they make. We would like to thank the thousands of pro bono volunteers, and the advice workers, staff and volunteers that make each clinic possible.
