DIFC Pro Bono Programme

DIFC Pro Bono Programme

The DIFC Courts’ Pro Bono Programme is the first-of-its-kind in the Middle East and was implemented in 2009. It provides access to justice for those who are financially in need and who have legal issues that fall within the DIFC Courts’ jurisdiction.

Pro Bono legal assistance is provided to individuals who:

  • cannot afford to pay for legal advice; and
  • need legal assistance for civil matters within the DIFC free zone (or fall within the DIFC Courts’ jurisdiction)

Please note legal assistance is not provided on criminal or family law matters.

Eligible individuals must certify that they do not have the financial means to pay for legal advice.

The programme also includes the following services:

Legal representation – If an individual is a party to a claim filed with the DIFC Courts and the assistance of a law firm is required to progress the claim, the Programme will help to assign a volunteer law firm to such cases.

Cost free trials – A costs-free trial allows potential Claimants the opportunity to bring a claim before the DIFC Courts without the fear or risk of paying the other side’s legal fees. 

Fee suspensions – A Pro Bono litigant can at any time apply to the Programme Leader to have the court fees suspended until the end of the case. The Programme Leader has absolute discretion in determining whether court fees are to be suspended and to what extent.
