Get help

PILA runs a Pro Bono Referral Scheme that connects social justice organisations with free legal expertise provided by a pro bono barrister or solicitor.

We work with a wide range of social justice partners, including community organisations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and independent law centres.

NGO partners can obtain free legal assistance where they do not have the resources or in-house expertise, in the following ways:

PILA also provides opportunities for organisations to attend events, or initiate roundtables on common themes or new areas of law.

If you are a qualifying organisation looking for legal help, please contact, Rachel Power, or read more on how the Scheme works here.

PILA is unable to help individuals with legal queries.

The only exception is where an NGO partner is supporting a person with a legal need that relates to a wider systemic issue.

If you are an individual with a legal question, you can contact FLAC’s telephone information and referral line on 019061010.
