Volunteering at SYRLJ

Volunteers have always been central to SYRLJ's work. We wouldn't be here today without the dedication, skills and time that so many people have provided through volunteering with us over the years.

Volunteers help us to provide vital legal support to more of those to need it, whilst also bringing new skills and fresh perspectives which help us to reflect on and develop our service. In return we aim to provide a supportive and inclusive environment where our volunteers can gain skills and experience.

What others say...


Volunteering at SYRLJ has been a fantastic experience for me so far. The client care and expertise that goes into the legal advice is astounding, everything that goes on at SYRLJ is driven by a genuine desire to stand up for justice in incredibly testing circumstance and it is a real privilege to be part of an organisation so committed to levelling the playing field in an asylum system more and more hostile towards refugees. As a full time student studying MA SQE1, SYRLJ has also been amazing from a training standpoint. I have been really impressed by the time and effort the team have put into helping me progress my legal skills and knowledge. They have been very understanding of the demands of my course and have been flexible with regards to time in the office. I would highly recommend any student, law or otherwise, to volunteer at SYRLJ."
