Volunteer Initiative Support Scheme

Are you involved in regular pro bono work for a particular group of persons or community in need but are not receiving organizational support?

The Volunteer Initiative Support Scheme (“VISS”) seeks to assists practitioners undertaking such pro bono work with administrative support and volunteer coordination and mobilization.

In particular, the Law Society Pro Bono Services can help to identify other practitioners undertaking similar pro bono work and help form volunteer groups dedicated to such similar work or community.

The Law Society Pro Bono Services can assist the group with knowledge database management by capturing and synthesizing practice information and expertise specific to the legal needs/issues for the needy group. The consolidated information will be used to produce volunteer manuals, materials and precedents to assist new volunteers.

The Law Society Pro Bono Services can also assist in:

  • recruitment drives and publicity for the volunteer group to increase awareness of the group’s pro bono work and to attract more volunteers;
  • law awareness events/seminars for the benefit of members of/service providers to the needy group; and
  • referring requests for legal assistance to group members

For Volunteer Initiative Support Scheme assistance/more information, please email us at volunteer@lawsocprobono.org.​
