ELA is proud to be supporting the 20th annual National Pro Bono Week (from 1st to 5th November 2021) and ELA’s Pro Bono Committee would like to invite all members to join a panel discussion about the virtual volunteering opportunities available to its members and in particular, ELIPS and Mumsnet online clinics.  

ELIPS (the Employment Tribunal Litigant in Person Scheme), one of ELA’s most successful pro bono projects, is now provided via an online platform, and covers the London Central, Cardiff, Bristol, Midlands West, Leeds and Manchester Employment Tribunals. You will hear from ELA members who have volunteered and how this has provided both personal and professional benefits and opportunities; student volunteers; and an ELA member who has taken responsibility for expanding the coverage of ELIPS to her local Employment Tribunal. We are delighted that Regional Employment Judge Wade will also be joining the panel, to talk about the difference that ELIPS can make to litigants in person.

Mumsnet online legal advice clinics are held quarterly with volunteers providing online legal advice on maternity and parental rights at work. Clinics are managed and supervised by Maternity Action, giving volunteers an opportunity to learn more about this area of law and contribute to tackling pregnancy discrimination. You will hear from one of the ELA volunteers who regularly takes part in Mumsnet clinics who will explain how they operate and why she finds this work so fulfilling.

Please submit any questions that you have about these volunteering opportunities, or any others to:
