LawWorks Free Legal Answers is a website where individuals on a low income, and not eligible for legal aid, can request initial or brief advice about a specific civil legal issue from a volunteer lawyer. The service is run by LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group), a charity which promotes and supports pro bono legal advice.
LawWorks Free Legal Answers is designed to enable access to legal advice for people on low incomes, while also providing pro bono opportunities for lawyers in a convenient way.
LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) promotes, supports and facilitates pro bono legal services that extend access to the law for individuals and communities in need and the organisations that support them.
We champion pro bono because of the positive contribution and difference it makes for individuals, communities and society.
We work (in England and Wales) with the solicitors’ profession and our members, the Law Society, law schools and law students, law centres, advice agencies and others to develop and support pro bono legal services, and to promote access to justice for all
