Oxford Legal Assistance
Dan Cashman and Ayaaz Nawab, founding co-chairs, talk about OLA
Oxford Legal Assistance (OLA) is the first pro bono programme at University of Oxford open to undergraduates as well as the University's first programme involving practical legal work for the benefit of people living in the local area. OLA co-ordinates a range of projects with Turpin and Miller, a local legal aid law firm, and the Oxford Citizens Advice Bureau where second year Oxford Law undergraduates can both develop their practical legal skills and help the local community.
OLA exists thanks to the support of the law faculty, our partner organisations the Citizens Advice Bureau and Turpin and Miller, our generous sponsors Baker & McKenzie and CMS Cameron McKenna and the commitment of our student volunteers.
