Lawyers launch pro bono plan to help Manchester bomb victims

The Manchester Law Society has set up a legal advice rota to help victims of the attack at the Manchester Arena on 22 May.

The attack killed 23 people, including the bomber, and seriously injured more than 120 others.

The Manchester Law Society is seeking firms who are willing to give pro bono advice to bereaved families to assist with Inquests, and to seriously injured people to assist with Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority claims.

A spokesperson for the Manchester Law Society said that they had already received hundreds of emails in response to the call for help.

More details can be found on the Society’s website. Lawyers interested in helping should contact FranEccles-Bech@manchesterlawsociety.org.uk with their name, firm, full contact details and area of speciality.
