PRO BONO, OR REDUCED RATES CIVIL LAWYERS TO ASSIST LITIGANTS IN PERSON
Effective May 2017, the Chief Justice recently released a Handbook for Civil Litigants in Person. In accordance with Chapter Two on Page 14 paragraphs (iii) of the Handbook, the Bar Office has compiled a list of lawyers who may be willing to conduct some (pro bono) work, or work at a reduced charge out rate.
The directory is retained at the Bar office in the event that should anyone require limited pro bono legal services or legal services at a reduced rate, the Bar Office will bring both parties together on a rotation basis. The Bar Office will take into consideration conflict concerns and will forward on the potential client to the lawyer selected from the list.
Extract - iii. Pro Bono Lawyers
Some lawyers undertake legal work for free or at reduced rates. The Bermuda Bar Association might also be able to put you in touch with a lawyer willing to give some limited free (pro bono) advice. You can reach their office by telephone at 295.4540 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
