A&L Goodbody Solicitors collaborate with the Irish Refugee Council as pro bono partners. On our referral, A&L Goodbody lawyers advise and represent applicants for international protection on a pro bono basis in the first interview stage of the asylum process. Over the past six years, A&L Goodbody has built up vast expertise in this area through representing approximately 50 applicants. This expertise is strengthened with regular training and ongoing support from our team and our Independent Law Centre.

The partnership between the Irish Refugee Council and A&L Goodbody was recognised with a Chambers Ireland Corporate Social Responsibility award in 2019.
