Pro Bono Request.

A SCHEME TO PROVIDE LEGAL ASSISTANCE TO PERSONS WHO HAVE A CIVIL OR COMMERCIAL DISPUTE WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF ADGM COURTS AND DO NOT HAVE FINANCIAL MEANS TO PAY.
ADGM Courts (the "Court") have introduced a scheme that provides legal assistance to ADGM-based individuals with limited financial means on a pro bono basis (i.e. at no cost). The pro bono scheme will enable individuals to obtain legal assistance in regard to a dispute or other legal issue, no matter whether they are involved in legal proceedings before the Court.

Pro bono legal assistance is available only to persons who: need legal assistance with a civil or commercial dispute or any other legal issue that falls within the jurisdiction of the Court; and they do not have the financial means to pay for such legal assistance.

The assistance provided under the Scheme involves a volunteer lawyer giving advice to an individual in relation to their legal issue. It does not extend to the volunteer lawyer providing ongoing advice or representing an individual before the Court. Any such arrangement is to be provided separately on terms to be agreed between the volunteer lawyer and the individual seeking assistance.
Pro bono assistance is not available to individuals who need advice in regard to criminal, family or inheritance issues, and for issues that fall outside the jurisdiction of the Court.

Prior to seeking pro bono legal assistance, applicants are requested to read the guides and information available on the Court's website here.

For information regarding ADGM employment matters, we recommend that applicants refer to the information provided by the ADGM Employment Affairs Office here. If applicants still wish to seek legal assistance, they should submit an application to the Scheme.
