Training and events

Welcome to the LawWorks training and events page.
In light of the current and ongoing covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic all LawWorks events and training are currently delivered using a mix, of Zoom and online video conference technologies.

LawWorks hosts events throughout the year which bring together key stakeholders and partners in the pro bono and advice sector.

We host forums for members, round tables for clinics, the annual LawWorks Pro Bono Awards and the Attorney General and LawWorks Student Pro Bono Awards.

Training

We also facilitate the delivery of training in social welfare law and professional/advice skills to equip volunteers with the confidence and competence to provide pro bono legal advice.

Find out more about our upcoming events in the listings below.
