Office Volunteers

ASAP is supported by Office Volunteers who provide vital administrative support to ASAP's Duty Scheme and busy office. Office Volunteers contribute to the smooth-running of ASAP's free legal representation service and to the success of our litigation and policy work by maintaining robust data collection and filing systems. A key part of the role is processing appeal papers for asylum seekers who are referred to us for representation, liaising with Tribunal staff, law firms and voluntary sector organisations. It also involves assisting with events, research and promoting ASAP's work.

We are not currrently recruiting any Office Volunteers.

Volunteer Lawyers


Solicitors are recruited on an annual basis to participate in our duty scheme for free legal representation at the Asylum Support Tribunal through agreements between ASAP and law firms. 


ASAP recruits barristers on an annual basis who can help us with our Duty Scheme at the First-tier Tribunal (Asylum Support), London. The Duty Scheme provides free legal representation for asylum seekers who are otherwise unrepresented during their asylum support appeal hearings.  If you are interested in finding out more about this exciting volunteering opportunity, please send an email to and and put “FAO Duty Scheme Coordinator” in the subject line.  You need to have your own insurance and court/tribunal advocacy experience.

Please note that duty scheme volunteer opportunities are not suitable for students.
