Pro Bono Services

Students studying on the Birmingham CampusThe Birmingham Law School Pro Bono Group (Birmingham PBG) is a CEPLER initiative which provides free legal services for the local community, and gives students the opportunity to develop the practical legal skills that they will need for their careers. To achieve these aims, Birmingham PBG currently has four spheres of activity:

Birmingham Free Legal Advice Group (Birmingham FLAG)

Birmingham FLAG offers free legal advice to members of the local community. If you have a legal issue that you would like help with, please contact us.

Street Law

Street Law sends students into the community to facilitate discussions and teach classes about law. If you would like us to deliver a session for you, please contact us.

The Pro Bono Lecture Series

The Lecture Series invites key speakers form the pro bono field to find out more about how they can use their legal skills to help those in need.

Casework and Research Assistance Group 

The Pro Bono Group provides student researchers and caseworkers to assist organisations and charities within the legal community. The projects vary and are dependent upon the requests for help. 

Please contact Birmingham PBG for more information or to enquire as to whether we can assist your organisation.
