Become a volunteer

Speirs170412FLAC083FLAC has always depended on the dedication of its volunteers who are involved with our work in many ways and share FLAC's passion for making law more accessible. FLAC volunteers support some of the most disadvantaged people in our communities and assist them to realise their right to access to justice.

If you are interested in joining us in widening access to justice, we would be delighted to hear from you! This is how you can get involved:

  • You can become a volunteer advisor in one of the Free Legal Advice Clinics around Ireland - you can read more about what to expect. Please note FLAC volunteer advisors must be fully qualified solicitors or barristers. To see where we recruit for, please see below. 

  • You can volunteer with the PILA (Public Interest Law Alliance) Pro Bono Referral Scheme. PILA is a project of FLAC that connects social justice organisations with free legal expertise. Law firms and lawyers provide much-needed assistance by helping NGOs with ad hoc legal advice, public interest litigation support, Law Reform Working Groups, legal education sessions or more sustained pro bono projects. Read more on the PILA website.

Please note that we are not in a position to take on law students. If you are a law student and are interested in volunteering, you may be able to get involved with one of the student FLAC societies.

FLAC is committed to its volunteers and intends to carry out the highest level of best practice in every aspect of volunteer management. 

We are revising our online registration form - please check back later to register online OR email us at with your name and email address and we will get in touch once the new form is online.

Thank you - we look forward to working with you on promoting access to juctice!
