The Not-for-Profits Programme from Law Works is for small not-for-profit organisations that cannot afford or would struggle to pay for legal advice.
Where a not-for-profit organisation needs help with a one-off legal issue, Law Works match the organisation with a volunteer lawyer from its network of member law firms and in-house legal teams who can advise on that matter. The advice is given for free (pro bono).
Examples of discrete matters volunteers can help with include:
- drafting a contract
- reviewing a lease
- updating a constitution/articles, or
- clarifying rights in a commercial dispute.
