LMM(86)15 Volunteer Lawyers: The Untapped Potential

This report grew out of a belief that the use of lawyers on a voluntary basis was a response to the legal needs of many Commonwealth countries which had been largely neglected and unexplored, and which deserved further attention. It seemed to be largely a matter of requesting governments, volunteer organisations and potential volunteers failing to join forces. Governments had not considered lawyers as a volunteer group, nor had they considered the use of volunteers as a way of meeting their legal needs.
