Pro bono services have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in an unprecedented way. Charities have had to transition their staff to home working, as providing advice through face-to-face meetings is no longer possible. Emergency appeals have been made to make sure the advice sector remains viable, and the scale of demand has been overwhelming for many.
The Law Society has created guidance for members who are thinking of providing pro bono assistance during the pandemic. That guidance can be found here.
