Pro Bono Manual by the Law Society of England and Wales

Through a mixture of commentary, advice, precedents and background information, the manual provides practical help and advice for organisations seeking to develop or expand their pro bono practices.

We anticipate that you will dip into the manual at different stages of your programmes, when sections are of particular value and interest.

  • Part 1 outlines the issues that firms and pro bono coordinators should consider when planning, developing and maintaining a programme.
  • Part 2 addresses the procedure and practice issues that firms and pro bono coordinators should consider in relation to the management and delivery of pro bono legal services.
  • Part 3 contains a number of precedents that firms can use as a guideline in the development of your own pro bono precedents. Firms should adapt or modify these to suit your own requirements and to match the parameters of your matter management systems.
  • Part 4 provides further information and resources regarding services and organisations relevant to pro bono work.
