How will a client be allocated to me? When a client is referred to Kids in Need of Defense UK we send the referral on to the relevant hub. A supervising lawyer will then contact pro bono partners to see whether there is anyone available to take on the case. Once our supervising lawyer receives confirmation that the case can be allocated to a pro bono lawyer s/he will liaise with the client and pro bono lawyers to arrange a first appointment. She’ll send you details of the client and the kind of application you’ll be working on.
