The Cayman Islands is taking part in Pro Bono Week with events and communications to showcase the new Cayman Islands Legal Assistance Clinic, and to encourage law students and attorneys to volunteer.
The Clinic represents a cooperative initiative between the Department of Legal Aid, the Cayman Islands Legal Practitioners Association and the Truman Bodden Law School under the direction of Chief Justice Anthony Smellie. The mandate of the clinic is to provide greater access to justice for eligible members of the community through the provision of free (pro bono) legal advice and assistance as a complement to the provision of legal services by the local bar and the formal legal aid system. Students at the Truman Bodden Law School have the opportunity to take part in hands-on legal work for the benefit of the wider community.
