FLAC - PILA Project
MUDEM Refugee Support Centre established in Ireland with a pro-bono legal aid service supported by FLAC-PILA Programme.
PILA works to inspire and engage lawyers in pro-bono work by supporting a culture of legal practice that actively delivers free legal assistance to those who are unable to pay for or access legal help. All legal assistance provided through PILA is given the same priority by lawyers as paid work and is completed to the same high standards. This includes ensuring that lawyers are competent to take on the matter, fully observe client confidentiality and all other rules of professional ethics. Legal partners agree to complete the work to an agreed deadline and to the NGO’s satisfaction.
A&L Goodbody took MUDEM’s case. Both their company and employment lawyers established the MUDEM Refugee Support Centre office and solved any work permit issues of the employees. They still provide legal advice to MUDEM when the need arises.
A&L is the leading law company in Ireland and is a sustainable partner of PILA.
