It gives me great pleasure to announce that The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting has, in line with its charitable charter, decided to provide the Free Representation Unit (FRU) with a complimentary subscription to our new online service, ICLR Online.
For anyone that doesn’t know, FRU is a charity that provides legal advice and advocacy services to those who are otherwise unable to obtain legal support for want of personal means or public funding. In order to provide this invaluable service, FRU enlists the help of volunteer law students and legal professionals who are in the early stages of their career. As such, not only is the service provided by FRU of substantial benefit to those who require the organisation’s assistance in the preparation and presentation of their cases, it is also an important source of education and training for law students and aspiring lawyers.
Given the current economic climate, the pro bono legal service provided by FRU will be more important than ever and ICLR is proud to support the work of the organisation by providing FRU with the most authoritative law reports on a complimentary basis.
