The Bar Pro Bono Unit is a charity which helps to find pro bono (free) legal assistance from volunteer barristers. 


Most barristers, including our volunteers, take their holidays over the summer so their availability is limited. This means that there may be delays in processing applications for assistance until mid-September. If your case is serious or urgent it will get priority, however we may not be able to help before any approaching deadline or hearing date. Please be patient as we continue to do our very best.
