We consider pro bono legal work to be a vital part of our cultural make-up and community spirit and a real opportunity for our lawyers to give back to those in need.
What kind of pro bono work do we do?
We have a strong commitment to the provision of pro bono legal services to those who could not otherwise afford legal representation or assistance.
We have a long history of engaging in pro bono activities and providing pro bono legal services. Our work is focused around supporting disadvantaged or marginalised people who cannot afford legal services; non-profit organisations that work for the public good and/or on behalf of members of the community who are disadvantaged or marginalised; and public interest matters of broad public or community concern that would not otherwise be pursued.
We also maintain a strong commitment to community legal centres through the provision of volunteer lawyers to staff legal clinics focused on supporting marginalised people.
We are a signatory to the Australian Pro Bono Centre’s National Pro Bono Aspirational Target of 35 pro bono hours per FTE lawyer. We are committed to this Target and to growing our pro bono commitment each year.
