KCL Pro Bono Society
Committed to providing students with opportunities to engage with our aims of increasing legal education and access to justice
ABOUT THE SOCIETY
The King's College London Pro Bono Society was founded in 2007 and has grown to encompass six skills-based volunteering projects. Our membership is composed of law and non-law students who are motivated by a pro bono publico mandate, which translates as ‘for the public good’.
We seek to enrich the learning experience at KCL by empowering our members to serve their communities’ legal and social needs. Our award-winning work takes form in assisting death-row inmates, providing alternative dispute resolution expertise, mentorship of sixth-form students as well as a wide range of other justice oriented projects.

OUR SIX PROJECTS
Our Society is made up of six projects covering a range of knowledge and skills based areas that are imperative to the field of pro bono work.
Amicus is a legal charity in the United Kingdom that works to provide support to capital defense lawyers in the United States.
The King's Chapter sends volunteers to assist in the legal representation of the defendants.
With a particular focus towards students from disadvantaged backgrounds, the Legal Outreach Project aims to offer guidance to students looking to venture into law. The project also hosts a mentorship programme for aspiring lawyers at King's.
