Pro Bono Legal Services UK is a small unregistered charity which helps to secure pro bono legal assistance from volunteer solicitors, leaders and junior barristers in all matters which include both criminal and civil actions. Pro Bono Legal Services UK is an entirely not – for- profit organisation totally committed and driven to ensuring that justice is served, particularly where there is evidence in place of a miscarriage of justice.  We also draw on many other resources with a broad  range of expertise.

Pro bono legal assistance is only available to those persons who do not have the means to pay and who are unable to obtain public funding.

Our organisation are able to provide legal advice, case preparation and advocacy in tribunal cases for those who are unable to obtain legal support, for want of financial means. To provide this service we are able to draw from a wide range of resources which includes volunteer law students and legal professionals in the initial stages of their career.  All of our case workers are volunteers who are trained by our organisation and work under the supervision of a senior case worker

We provide representation for:

  • Claims in the employment tribunals and appeals from decisions of the employment tribunals
  • Social security appeals in the first-tier tribunal and appeals from such decisions
  • Criminal injury compensation cases in the first-tier tribunal and appeals from such decisions
  • Preparation of applications to the Criminal Cases Review Commission
  • Preparation and representation in the 1st tier tribunal (property chamber)
  • Preparation and representation of appeals in the upper tribunal (lands tribunal)
