Free Law Direct for Charities

Free Law Direct for Charities

Free Law Direct provides free access to a network of lawyers over the internet.

The project aims to assist charities, frontline advice agencies and other not-for-profit organisations, by providing initial legal advice from qualified solicitors.

If you have a quick legal question, you can use Free Law Direct to ask a lawyer online.

Access the online services via their website, and their online Fact Sheets.

The project is managed by LawWorks, a charity which aims to provide free legal help to individuals and community groups who cannot afford to pay for it and who are unable to access legal aid.

In the last year LawWorks helped provide free legal advice to over 40,000 people and around 350 voluntary sector organisations. We work with just under 100 member law firms and teams of in-house counsel, as well as mediators, law students and solicitors who are unemployed, involving them all in pro bono work.
