The Centre is launching it’s new website, which can be found at probonocentre.org.au.
The Centre’s old website served the Centre and the community well for twelve years, but it is time to reorganise and refresh the content and, importantly, make it mobile-friendly.
The site is now split in to three main sections:
- Links to Legal Help
Information on where to find legal assistance for individuals, organisations and community legal services. In this section the Centre provides simple, easy-to-understand information on legal assistance available in Australia, whether it is from legal aid, community legal centres, pro bono referral organisations or other sources. The section for individuals provides a suggested order for contacting legal services in every state and territory.
- Provide Pro Bono Assistance
Information for those that provide pro bono assistance in Australia, or are looking to do so. Different subsections are provided for law firms and practices, individual solicitors and barristers, in house lawyers and legal teams and law students. This section includes some of the Centre’s most popular resources, including the Australian Pro Bono Manual, Pro Bono Partnerships and Models: A Practical Guide to What Works and Social Justice Opportunities.
- Information on Pro Bono
Information on pro bono itself, including definitions, history in Australia and presence around the world, as well as links to all the Centre’s publications and resources (including Australian Pro Bono News), resources from other organisations, the Centre’s conferences, and the annual National Pro Bono Day and Walk for Justice. This section provides information for those looking for a window on the Australian pro bono sector.
A last section, About the Centre, contains everything you would expect to find, including our own history and information on strategic direction, governance, annual reports and contact details.
It is not necessary to look far for the Centre’s most popular resources and publications, as eight can be reached directly from the home page:
