Freshfields takes pro bono work seriously, making no distinction between pro bono and other client work. 

When you work pro bono, you can use the law to help women, children, the vulnerable, the LGBT+ community, trafficking survivors and refugees access their legal rights. For example, you could be using decision-tree tech to help society's most vulnerable get justice or developing innovative solutions such as social impact bonds, which are changing how social projects are funded.

We maximise impact to bring systemic change. For example, we recently helped bring a landmark decision on Jamaican anti-LGBT+ laws, and brought a class action suit for Iraqi and Afghani visa applicants facing mortal danger. As well as being Stonewall's pro bono partner, we help create Global Workplace Briefings that illuminate the situation for LGBT+ people in a number of countries. And we support Save the Children from 22 of our offices worldwide. 

If you want to get involved at a more individual level, we act directly for victims of human trafficking referred by NGOs such as the Anti Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit. We also send volunteers to legal clinics such the Tower Hamlets Law Centre, which we’ve supported for 45 years.
