  • Offer your lawyers a fun and easy way to develop their skills while fulfilling their commitment to pro bono. 
  • Develop your talent and client pipeline by connecting with the next generation of lawyers and start-ups. 
  • Forge close relationships with academia and those helping to shape the future of legal practice. 

What opportunities are available to you?

  • Supervising students’ client cases and workshops
  • Legal skills training
  • Panel members
  • Mentor opportunities
  • Hackathon competition judges

What’s the time commitment?

We’re flexible, depending on your lawyers’ availability!

Volunteers choose whether they spend a couple of hours delivering legal skills training, 7-8 hours supervising a client case or workshop, or provide longer-term mentoring for students.

The areas of law that we practice in are very dynamic. When we advise clients, our aim is to futureproof our advice to the extent that we can. To do so, we need to keep ahead of new developments and in tune with what could happen in the future. Working with a university just gives you that edge.

olunteering with qLegal is a very easy (and fun!) way of giving something back.

I like the idea of using my legal skills, giving back, helping start-ups and in particular helping students in doing their pro-bono work...empowering them.
— Puja Modha, Partner at Aria Grace Law
qLegal is a good way for me to work with types of clients that I wouldn’t otherwise come across. The sessions are well organised, the advance materials are thorough and informative, and the students’ work product is usually of a very high standard – which makes my job of supervising much easier!
