Volunteer as a solicitor
If you are fully qualified Scots Law solicitor and would like to support us, why not consider volunteering for the Centre. As a volunteer solicitor you can help by responding to e-mail enquiries received from the public to our advice line. We would normally ask you to respond to one or two e-mail enquiries each week depending on how busy we are. Most of the enquires we receive come from parents, other family members and professionals. The types of queries we receive include issues relating to PRRs, contact and residence, holiday disputes, name change, education law, additional support needs, child protection, children’s hearings and many others.
Our volunteer solicitors have experience in child and family law or experience in other areas of law which impact on children (e.g. immigration, mental health or disability/equality law). You are welcome to try out volunteering with us with no obligation to continue. If you become too busy to continue volunteering at any point you can always stop or have a volunteering break.
