We exist because committed barristers across England and Wales care about access to justice for everyone

Advocate is the Bar’s national charity that makes it possible for barristers to balance a dedicated practice with making a significant contribution to the community.

We match members of the public who need free legal help with barristers who are willing to donate their time and expertise in deserving cases for those who are unable to obtain legal aid and cannot afford to pay.


We really need your support

Advocate is an independent charity that relies on donations to meet all its running costs.
