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.
Im so grateful the Bar ProBono Unit exists and even more grateful I have met lawyers who work through it with such generosity of spirit that our faith in mankind is once again restored.
- Former Unit applicant
I cannot speak any higher of the volunteer barrister, nothing was too much trouble for him and he always explained everything very clearly to me. Your Unit has restored my faith in human kindness as without you I would have been put in an impossible position. Again I cannot thank you enough. The barrister is a credit to your profession and the Bar Pro Bono Unit.
