Legal Advice Centre

Volunteer with us

Our volunteer lawyers are a key part of the Legal Advice Centre and allow us to expand our advice provision to cover employment, family and small business.

Our award winning Legal Advice Centre has advised over 1500 clients since opening in 2014, providing quality pro bono advice to members of the public from Greenwich Borough and further afield (we have no geographic limit for clients).

If you are a qualified solicitor or barrister with 3 years PQE then you are welcome to approach the director of the service to enquire about volunteering.

  • We set up all appointments for you
  • We employ a full-time administrator who communicates regularly with volunteers and provides administrative support
  • We also employ a qualified solicitor who supervise students to produce drafts of advice letters following the initial meeting
  • Once draft advice letters are ready, they are sent to our volunteer lawyers to approve before they go out
