LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) is launching a new online pro bono portal – called the Pro Bono Portal UK – to help match unmet legal need with pro bono lawyers.

Following a successful pilot and development stage, the charity is initially using the portal for its Not-for-Profits Programme which connects hundreds of smaller charities with free legal advice from (so far) over 40 leading law firms and in-house legal teams.

Originally developed by Justice Connect in Australia, their award-winning portal has been adapted for use in the UK (initially in England and Wales) and other international jurisdictions. The Portal connects lawyers with pro bono opportunities from one place - efficiently, simply and securely.

The Portal will be available to law centres, advice agencies and others to directly post their pro bono opportunities and connect with law firms and in-house teams. Alternatively, the pro bono opportunities can be sent to LawWorks to be added to the Portal.
