English term or phrase: duty solicitor
In the several Commonwealth countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, a duty solicitor (or, in Canada, a duty counsel) is a solicitor whose services are available to a person either suspected of, or charged with, a criminal offence free of charge (pro bono) if that person does not have access to a solicitor of their own.
