The Bar Pro Bono Unit is a national charity which matches volunteer barristers eager to undertake pro bono work with those who need legal assistance but cannot obtain public funding (legal aid) and cannot afford to pay for it.
Three opportunities exist for determined, organised and motivated individuals to join our busy casework team. Strong communication skills and scrupulous attention to detail are a must as you will be liaising with barristers and processing applications on a daily basis. You will work closely alongside the dedicated and friendly Unit team, and our pre-volunteered panel of almost 3,500 barristers. This is a great opportunity for law graduates to use their legal qualification to increase access to justice in these trying times. We also welcome applications from people with a minimum of 1 year relevant legal or related experience.
These are full-time roles.
