LawWorks Training

To support the delivery of competent pro bono advice, LawWorks delivers a programme of social welfare, family and immigration law training sessions.

Podcasts of the sessions and accompanying materials are available online to enable distance learning. For podcasts, handouts and presentations from previous training sessions please click on the relevant course in the listing below.

The programme relies on the pro bono assistance of LawWorks Member firms in hosting the sessions, as well as the goodwill of trainers who are willing to share their knowledge and expertise pro bono.

We are very grateful for the ongoing support of the training  programme.
