BAR IN THE COMMUNITY attracts and helps to channel the interest of barristers and other legal professionals wishing to serve the community by using their skills in a different way. This allows voluntary organisations to tap into the numerous skills and experience which these individuals can bring.
One of the projects run by Bar in the Community is a trustee finding service for charities wishing to appoint legally qualified trustees. The service is free and available throughout England and Wales. It operates from the office of the Bar Pro Bono Unit. We ask that you do not contact the charities directly and instead email BICenquiries@barprobono.org.uk indicating your interest.
Application forms for individuals interested in joining Bar in the Community can be found here. Organisations seeking to advertise trusteeships or request another type of assistance from the legal sector should apply using the form found here.
