Our work in the community and charitable support.

The Chancery Bar Litigants in Person Scheme (“CLIPS”).

Barristers at Tennyson are involved in their local communities and have participated in the Chancery Bar Litigants in Person Scheme (“CLIPS”) which offers pro bono legal advice and representation to litigants in person (“LIP”) who appear at the Applications Court in the Rolls Building of the High Court and the County Court at Central London unrepresented, and are unable to afford their own legal representation. CLIPS is run by members of the Chancery Bar Association in conjunction with the Royal Courts of Justice Advice Bureau.

Key Areas

The Bar Pro Bono Unit.

We accept cases from the Bar Pro Bono Unit to give legal assistance to LIP who are not able afford their own legal representation and need legal assistance.

Other charitable fund raising.

Tennyson encourages support for two UK health charities namely The British Lung Foundation and The British Heart Foundation. Heart attacks and lung diseases affect many people in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Your support to assist medical research in these areas would be greatly appreciated.

Particularly support is encouraged for Bronchiectasis which is a currently incurable disease of the lungs causing immense daily suffering for those affected, and its occurrence in the elderly population is increasing. Please go to the web sites of the British Lung Foundation and the British Heart Foundation where donations may be made. Please give your support to their efforts.

If you are a client, please email practicemanager@tennysonchambers.com if you have voluntarily made such a donation after using the services of barristers at Tennyson Chambers.
