Legal volunteering opportunities

Volunteering is about giving something back to the community and helping others, but it's a great way to develop yourself too. You can learn new skills and gain hands-on experience in a law environment. This can complement the academic and theoretical skills you already have from your degree.

The LSE Volunteer Centre is here to help LSE students find a volunteering placement at a charity or not-for-profit organisation during your time studying at LSE.

On LSE CareerHub we often list law related volunteering opportunities. Some of these can be seen below.
