Information about this form

What is this form?

This form is to apply for legal assistance from UPJ, which is a pro bono legal service connecting volunteer lawyers to people who need legal help.

Who should apply?

We assess each application individually in order to determine whether we can put you forward for counselling. We prioritise helping people and organisations that are most in need.

What happens next?

After a request is submitted, you will get a confirmation email. We may call or email you asking for more information before we determine whether we can put you forward for counselling.

We try to respond to applications within the next few working days, however it may take longer over holiday or busy periods. We may not be able to process requests with binding deadlines in time.

Agreement

I understand that I am making a request for assistance only, and until UPJ indicates that legal assistance will be provided, no client-solicitor relationship is created.
