Professional (pro bono) member

The Environmental Law Foundation’s great strength has always been its national network of professional lawyers and technical advisers.

Different individuals and firms have different, often mixed reasons for joining us and we’re more than happy to take your priorities into account.
Some welcome pro bono work for its own sake, others to increase their expertise in a particular field, and almost all welcome the occasional pro bono case which leads to paid work. A few – primarily the larger firms – do not wish to have cases referred to them, but are keen to support us and contribute towards our consultation responses and events.

Members benefits include contact with our university clinics, access to research on particular issues (especially as our network and number of cases grows) and regular case news.

If you have any queries about membership, please email and Emma Montlake or one of our trustees will call you promptly.
