Academic Year Casework Volunteers 2017 - 2018

 

The Bar Pro Bono Unit is seeking dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to volunteer as Academic Year Casework Volunteers in the National Pro Bono Centre on Chancery Lane, London. The Casework Volunteer position is for one day a week from 2nd October 2017 to 2nd February 2018.

 

You will be assisting the caseworkers one day per week, over a four month period.  Tasks will include:

 

  • Taking telephone calls from the public and providing updates to existing applicants
  • Drafting case summaries, using the case papers provided by individuals who need legal assistance; these case summaries are then used by experienced barristers when reviewing the file
  • Drafting case allocation summaries which are used to try to find volunteer barristers around the country to take on the case on a pro bono basis.

 

This is a fantastic opportunity to obtain unique exposure to the Bar as a profession and to a wide range of areas of law. You will also learn a great deal about the practical working of the courts and the needs of litigants in person which should complement your studies.

 

You must have completed at least one year of law-related study or law-related work. Voluntary sector and office experience is preferred but not essential. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed at our office the week commencing 18th September 2017.

 

As a small charity with limited staff and resources we are not able to provide feedback or discuss the volunteering positions with you.

 

The deadline for applications is Sunday 10th September 2017.
