EOU Solicitor Pro Bono Project
This project provides free legal advice by fully qualified solicitors to London’s black, Asian, minority ethnic and refugee (BAMER) community.
Why the project is needed
In light of Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO) cuts, those from the BAMER community have been impacted greatly. The cuts to those from the BAMER community in particular have been devastating. Doubly impacted, because as well as the usual hardships of life, there are cultural and language barriers. BAMER should not be barred from having access to justice because of the above stated reasons.
Aims of project
- To relieve overcapacity of other service providers such as CAB, legal advice centres, advocacy clinics and other independent advice clinics;
- To provide a free advice service to the community by qualified solicitors with specialised knowledge and expertise;
- To remedy the issue of service users being subjected to long waiting times and over-complicated processes to access free legal services.
