Pro Bono Connect helps barristers and solicitors collaborate on pro bono cases

We match barristers and solicitors acting pro bono on civil matters for individuals, charities and community groups who cannot afford legal advice or representation

Our matching process

1. Send us the details of your case using our request template

Member firms or chambers send us details of their case using our template request form

2. We post details of your case to the PBC member network

We notify our pool of members of the details of the case. Requests from barristers are sent to our solicitors’ pool and vice versa

3. Get contacted from interesting parties and start collaborating

If one of our members wishes to collaborate on the case, they will contact the requesting barrister or solicitor directly

Pro Bono Connect is a signatory to the Joint Pro Bono Protocol for Legal Work

Pro Bono Connect also welcomes solicitor advocates as part of the scheme. All references to requests by or to barristers on this website should be read as barristers/solicitor advocates.
