Free Representation Unit FRU logo


The Free Representation Unit is a pro bono charity. We represent our clients in employment, social security, and criminal injuries compensation tribunals. Our advocates are all volunteers, most of who are aspiring lawyers at the start of their career. We train our volunteers and support them as they prepare for the hearing and negotiate with respondents in employment cases. We are also grateful to barristers in practice who help us with advice and representation in complex and appellate cases.  

FRU receives fantastic support from the Bar Council, the Inns, ICBET, specialist Bar associations and many chambers and individual barristers.
