20 Years

20 Stories of Change

The Australian Pro Bono Centre is marking 20 years of operation in 2022. To celebrate this occasion, we have gathered here 20 stories from the Australian pro bono community, illustrating the power of pro bono to transform lives.

In the stories below, you’ll read about pro bono clients and the lawyers who assisted them. Ranging from stories of individuals fighting for justice through to complex projects tackling systemic change, they collectively produce a picture of how pro bono is a powerful force for good in situations where no other legal assistance is available.
