Defence Assist

What is it?

A scheme under which members facing disciplinary proceedings may seek legal assistance on disciplinary proceedings from fellow volunteer members either on a pro bono or ad honorarium basis.

The role of the Law Society is limited to making available to members the list of volunteers. Under the scheme, the Law Society does not assess and express their views on the suitability of a person providing assistance under the scheme.
