LawWorks Clinics Network Roundtable September 2019 round-up

The September LawWorks Clinics Network roundtable provided the opportunity for clinic coordinators in London, Birmingham and Leeds to learn more about the Finding Legal Options for Women Survivors (FLOWS) project, which offers support to women survivors of domestic violence and front line workers.

LawWorks held a roundtable in London, Birmingham and Leeds on 26th September 2019 to share information about the resources and support available through the FLOWS project.

Alex Lowry, FLOWS Solicitor and Promotions lead, spoke about the FLOWS project and how to access local or online legal advice through the scheme. Alex also demonstrated Courtnav, an online tool to help women make an application for a non-molestation order, including generating a statement, which can then be reviewed by a solicitor before being submitted. Mandip Ghai, Solicitor and Rights of Women Senior Legal Officer, spoke about the FLOWS Forum, an online platform for front line workers to discuss family law topics and trends, and share good practice and experiences.

We also shared information about two tools designed to help clinics and clients with managing their pro bono cases:

The OurFamilyWizard website offers divorced or separated parents a collection of tools to schedule parental responsibility, share important family information, manage expenses and create an accurate, clear record of co-parenting communication. The website offers complimentary accounts for families who have financial hardship and offers a discount for any active or retired members of the Armed Forces.

Baobab Connect provides a set of tools to help track cases, manage teams and measure the impact of your pro bono work. The chat-based platform helps to keep track of all correspondence relating to your case. The tool is available free to community and pro bono organisations. Visit baobab.law for further details, information about pricing for profit organisations, or a free trial.
