Lawyers Volunteering for the Arts began life in 2010 when a small group of interested law firms formed a working group to try and address the legal needs of low income arts organisations across England and Wales. Since 2012, a pro bono referral initiative has seen firms assist arts groups across the country on a wide range of legal issues.
This scholarship will enable a law student to support the LVFA initiative whilst gaining practical experience of the pro bono advice sector and financial support. Find out more about this opportunity on the LVFA Scholarship page.
