Lawyers needed

cardiff uniThe pro bono programme at Cardiff Law School needs you!

We are looking for lawyers (possibly retired or who have had to give up (or put in abeyance) a legal career due to caring responsibilities / other interruptions) who are interested on a voluntary basis in getting involved in lending their skills to mentor students on a pro bono programme.

The programme is supported by Cerebra a unique charity supporting disabled children and their families.  As part of the programme students prepare legal opinions on commonly occurring problems disabled children and their families experience in accessing their statutory rights to health, education and social care support services.

We are in need of people with legal skills / experience to work with the students: reading and critically analysing their draft opinions and ensuring these are of suitable quality.

It is not essential to have a detailed knowledge of health, education and social care law as the programme is supervised by Law School staff and an expert team from Cerebra.  What we need is people with legal skills who understand the craft of drafting legal opinions / advice letters.

If this is of possible interest – please make contact with either:

and very many thanks.
