Our Pro-Bono Policy
The provision of advice and support to those who need it the most, yet who are often least able to afford it, is at the very heart of ASL Solicitors’ pro bono philosophy. We believe that we can use our legal expertise to ‘give something back’ to our local communities. We have a team of pro bono champions from around the firm who each manage pro bono activity in their region.
Under our firm wide pro bono scheme we provide free legal advice and representation to individuals and community groups who cannot pay and where public funding is not available. In addition, we support a number of community based schemes and initiatives that enable us to support hard to reach sections of the community.
Quite simply, our aim is to ensure access to justice for all.
Links with Students
We are committed in providing pro bono support and we believe that it is important to instil this ethic in the legal professionals of the future.
Links with local universities ensure that we are able to work directly with students and provide support for their pro bono projects. Schemes operate in virtually all of the cities in which we have offices.
