Supporting housing rights and homelessness through free legal assistance
One of Ireland’s biggest and most pressing social issue is access to affordable and sustainable housing. Partnered with Mercy Law Resource Centre and Focus Ireland, A&L Goodbody lawyers attend an out-reach clinic every Wednesday afternoon to support individuals and families experiencing homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Unlike other models, which are limited to advice and information, the firm provides end-to-end case work to support an individual or family out of homelessness where this is necessary. Currently 153 solicitors are on the volunteer roster for the clinic. In 2020, as COVID19 required everyone to switch to remote working, the firm adapted quickly and the clinic remained fully operational.
